Meet Snjezana Jaksic, a RAMMY Finalist for Manager of the Year 2023! She was recognized for her outstanding service, exemplary work ethic and positive image.

Snježana began her journey with us as a Host. Shortly after joining, she received training to become a server, and in February 2016, she was invited to join our prestigious Management Academy. Upon completing the program, Snježana transitioned to serving and bartending full-time, while also taking on a few shifts as a Shift Supervisor.

In the summer of that year, Snježana embraced the role of FOH Manager full time and played a crucial part in the opening of Ambar Clarendon in the Fall of 2016. Her dedication and hard work led her to begin training for the AGM position at the start of 2018, and in November 2018, she was promoted to the esteemed position of General Manager.

We are strong advocates of equal opportunity.

After all, we at Ambar are the result of it.
