Knox has selected Bon Appétit Management Company to run campus dining and catering services for the 2015-2016 academic year, Vice President for Finance Tom Axtell announced in an email Monday.
Axtell informed the campus in April that Director of Dining Services Helmut Mayer would be retiring on Aug. 31, 2015 and that the college was searching for new management.
Two individuals from Bon Appétit will be on Knox’s campus in the fall. Kecia Tatman will serve as the Interim General Manager. Tatman previously worked at Wabash College as the Catering Operations Manager for over a decade, according to Axtell.
Jason Crouch will work as the Executive Chef. He is coming to Knox from DePauw University, where he has worked as Chef Manager.
Axtell highlighted several of Bon Appétit’s policies that focus on sustainability, including practices pertaining to local purchasing of ingredients, sustainable seafood and the overuse of antibiotics.
