University of Colorado Colorado Springs hires first foodservice director
Jan. 15—A 24-year veteran of the food service industry will be the first director of university-operated food services at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs.
Mark Hayes, currently director of dining and summer conferences at the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point, was selected following a national search. His appointment was announced Jan. 13 by Susan Szpyrka, vice chancellor, Administration and Finance.
“Mark brings a wealth of experience to UCCS,” Szpyrka said. “He led the transition of a campus from vendor-operated to university-operated and is a leader in sustainability and local food movements. I look forward to his arrival and encourage the campus community to both welcome him and embrace his ideas.”
