Scott Kammerer, president of SoDel Concepts, recently announced the promotion of Meghan King to the position of director of training and development for the hospitality group.

King was previously the general manager of Lupo Italian Kitchen, SoDel’s Italian restaurant in Rehoboth Beach.

“The director of training and development needs to be a skilled and experienced person who can work with new employees and represent our culture,” Kammerer said. “The director must also know our policies and our practices inside and out. Meghan is perfect for the job.”

King, who grew up in the Greater Philadelphia area, moved to Lewes after graduating from high school. She has a bachelor’s degree in human services from the University of Delaware. She started working for SoDel Concepts in 2008 as a server at Lupo.

In her new position, she is training new managers and front-of-the-house employees. She’s been on-site at the new Bluecoast Seafood Grill and Raw Bar in Rehoboth Beach, which opened in June. In fall, she will develop a continuing education program for all servers, front-of-the-house staff, managers and general managers.

King lives in Milton with her husband and two children.
