Sullivan University Hires Stromer as Director of Food and Beverage

Sullivan University based in Louisville, Ky., is pleased to announce that Scott A. Stromer has joined the team as its new director of food and beverage operations.

Stromer will head all food and beverage activities for the Sullivan University System, including Winston’s restaurant, the A la Carte Café, The Bakery, Juleps Catering and all commissaries. He also will oversee the dining facility at Sullivan University’s new Gardiner Point Residence Hall, which opens on June 23. This state-of-the-art housing project will feature a freestanding eatery operated primarily by Sullivan University students and graduates along with a professional management team, setting it apart from the majority of the country’s residence halls, which typically offer cafeteria-style dining.

“Scott brings a wealth of industry experience in both university and restaurant environments to Sullivan University,” said chancellor A.R. Sullivan. “His 30 years of experience with high-profile organizations and universities all across the country will certainly be an asset to our students and faculty. We’re thrilled to have him join our team.”

Most recently, Stromer was dining and culinary executive director for Michigan State University, operating club divisions and student dining in East Lansing, Mich. Prior to joining the educational community, he was owner of Culinary Restaurant Group and executive director of culinary for Restaura, Inc., both located in Phoenix, Ariz. He began his career in food and beverage operations for Hyatt Hotels and Amway Grand Plaza, working in markets throughout the country.

Stromer earned degrees from The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y. and Michigan State University.
