Oliver takes food service director post at St. Andrews

LAURINBURG — Pioneer College Caterers, which provides food service for St. Andrews University, has announced that a new food service director has been assigned to St. Andrews.

Brian Oliver replaces Brian Johnson, who was at St. Andrews for the past two years and was recently promoted to a district manager position in the Midwest for Pioneer.

Oliver arrived July 1, having been with Pioneer at Campbellsville University in Kentucky since 2016. His duties there consisted of hiring, training and supervising 50-75 hourly and student workers in the main dining room, supervising the serving of 7,500 meals weekly, plus catering and working with the athletic department for pre-game meals.

He is a 2012 Campbellsville University graduate with a bachelor of science degree in organizational management. His interests include youth baseball and football and Campbellsville’s community garden.

According to Pioneer, “Brian is a high energy individual with a passion for service and a desire to create exceptional dining experiences … and brings a spirit of servant leadership to our team at St. Andrews University.”

Oliver’s work has already begun as he makes preparations for new student orientation, which begins Aug. 16 and classes on Aug. 21.
