The Student Union Society (SUS) has hired Alberto Cortes as their new food and beverages director following the departure of Shane Potter. Potter’s position of services director was split when a job posting was sent out in the search for a replacement.
“The position now focuses on our food and beverage services throughout the building. That’s the Canoe, Fair Grounds, our catering line, as well as managing the contracts of things like the snack machines and the Coke machines in the building,” says SUS president Thomas Davies.
Potter’s position also included overseeing the health and dental plan, the campus connector shuttle, and the U-Pass program. SUS is currently deciding who will be responsible for each of the services.
“Probably, most will fall broadly under the executive director,” says Davies. “None of them have much day-to-day work. They just operate and a couple times a year we have to do some check-ins and see how things are going.” Meghan McDonald is the current executive director.
