General Manager

General Manager, Alex Schultz

With a bachelor’s degree in hospitality management from The Ohio State University (OSU), Alex Schultz is no stranger to the restaurant industry. It was during his years at OSU that Alex was first introduced to Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, working in the kitchen at Mitchell’s Ocean Club for more than a year. Alex also held various positions at casual and fine dining restaurants, ranging from front of house supervisor to general manager, which further honed his hospitality expertise.

Schultz made his return to Cameron Mitchell Restaurants as dining room manager at Cap City in Gahanna, OH. Between 2008 and 2016, Alex went on to hold management positions at Molly Woo’s, Mitchell’s Ocean Club and Ocean Prime Indianapolis - never leaving the Cameron Mitchell family.

Alex can’t wait to bring his experience in delivering genuine hospitality to Ocean Prime and create raving fans in the nation’s capital.


Sales and Event Manager

Sales and Event Manager, Darnell Howell

Darnell began her career with Ocean Prime in 2019. Darnell found her way into the restaurant industry when a close friend opened up a restaurant and asked her to help with marketing and sales. From there, her passion for the industry grew. To be in the hospitality field, Darnell feels you have to love making people happy, something she loves doing every day at Ocean Prime. When not at the restaurant, Darnell enjoys teaching cooking classes and handcrafting ice cream sandwiches!
