Mr. Solomon Freeman

Through 15 years of entrepreneurship since the age of 16, I developed my servant-leadership qualities. Subsequently I worked as a Spokesman and Personal Assistant to a well-known international celeb, and in the event management business servicing Fortune 100 companies for over 5 years. In that capacity, I organized anything from small family events for 20 people, to a large convention with 60,000 visitors. Handling staff teams of 30 to 100 people regularly taught me the importance of Time and People Management, and to always be prepared for the unexpected.

I possess a keen eye for detail with an ISTJ personality (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator); Integrity, Loyalty, Discipline, and a Sense of Duty are in my blood. I have had global experience in 8 countries around the world (Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, the Netherlands and Germany), and so mastered the ability to communicate in 7 languages professionally.

Most recently, my service as Personal Assistant in the household of a Japanese Ambassador and a Russian HNWI, provided me with the opportunity to fulfill my passion in serving highly influential people. My responsibilities included, but were not limited to, attending to personal and corporate affairs, chauffeuring, upkeep of vehicles and estates, ensuring the comfort and safety of any guests.

With my experience in managing an 80,000 sq. ft. (135 rooms) private household with 24 staff and 2 chefs, I can be counted on to carry out my duties diligently with utmost integrity and discretion, there is no exception.

Please contact the Institute should your esteemed household or establishment have a need for my expertise.

Mr. Jaris David Edwards, CBHM

As a meticulous and dependable service professional with thirteen years of experience working in the luxury service industry, I am confident in my ability as an experienced leader to serve as a Household Manager, Traveling Butler or Luxury Lifestyle Manager.  My résumé showcases my career achievements in the luxury hospitality and private service sectors.

Combining a degree in Food and Beverage Management and a Butler and Household Management certification with my experience as a member of management teams at world-renowned luxury hotels and resorts, I have the ability to work independently both as a project leader and team member.  I possess the business acumen required for various roles and utilize interpersonal and communication skills to lead, influence and encourage other staff to accomplish the goals of a residence or luxury hospitality setting.  My values and healthy lifestyle are the foundation of my personal and professional strengths. I am adept at recognizing personal preferences and anticipating and accommodating needs to exceed a high level of service standard.  My greatest strengths are administration, entertaining and operations.

I am proficient at calendar management, strategic scheduling, payroll- and budget management. Over the years, I have successfully planned and executed events ranging from private dinners in remote settings in the Caribbean for 2–12 people; weddings and receptions with up to 450 guests; summits for Heads of State (APEC 2010, Singapore); group vacations with varied dietary requirements and corporate incentive events catering for more than 800 attendees. In addition, throughout my career, I am known for my sound financial and business decision making, as well as the planning, coordination, supervision, and successful execution of various private household and hospitality operations.

These skills and experience, coupled with my desire for excellence makes me a perfect fit as an eligible candidate for a placement opportunity. Please contact the Institute  ( for my résumé and contact information.

Mr. Edmons E. Alters

 Featured IIMB MembersMy understanding of superlative service was gained during the time when I studied at The International Institute of Modern Butlers, and I have already had a chance to apply many of my skills at some of the most luxurious hotels and five-star hospitality venues in London, where I worked in junior service positions. I am also certified by The British Butler Institute.

Being a reliable, responsible, hardworking, and enthusiastic young person seeking long-term employment in private service as a butler, I envision myself as a right hand man of my future principal.

Good knowledge of table service and valeting are definitely my strong points; however, I am confident in undertaking a large variety of other household duties, such as cleaning, light (and more complicated) cooking, pet care, and handyman duties. I have good driving skills.

Fluent in English, with Russian as my mother tongue, I have conversational language skills in French, too.

My on-going priority is self-development in the field, so I never miss a chance to learn something new through professional experience or further vocational training. I dedicate my free time to advancing my French and a BA in Hospitality and Tourism.

I invite you to contact the Institute if you would like to reach me.
