This position is for an Event and Operations Director for forageSF. We’re looking for someone with extensive experience in catering, event management, and event sales, to join us. 

The perfect person for this job would have experience managing eclectic events, negotiating with clients, hiring/managing employees, managing budgets, and have unique ideas of how to increase the sales of our already well established brand.
