Personnel and Administration Manager
Marcy Calderoni began her career working part-time in a kitchen peeling bags of carrots and potatoes. Shortly after she was hired, the Executive Chef noticed that she had strong cooking skills and the ability to produce. She began working full time cooking weekdays and picking up shifts working as a catering server and captain on the weekends. Marcy has always felt that preparing and serving delicious food is more fun than work.
In 2008, Marcy left catering to work for Compass Group, a large food service provider. She worked as a Front of the House Dining Manager at Wesleyan University before being promoted to Director of Operations at Hampshire College. She gained experience opening a new account, negotiating a union contract, as well as recruiting, hiring and training professional chefs and front of the house staff. She was recognized for her ability to build relationships between the staff and various student body groups. She was passionate about supporting local farmers and artisans by purchasing fruits, vegetables, dairy, and eggs that were grown or produced locally. At Hampshire College she supported sustainability efforts by continually educating staff on reducing waste and facilitating composting of nearly all of the post-consumer waste.
In the fall of 2014, Marcy accepted the position of Personnel and Administrative Manager at Riverhouse Catering. She’s thrilled to be back where she started, working in the catering field. Marcy has been working hard to refine and build the team of off-premise Captains, Servers, Bartenders and Utility workers. She leads by example, staying positive and tackling obstacles with confidence. Marcy continues to embrace the words of Confucius “Find a job you love and you will never work a day in your life.”
