Harvard University Dining Services (HUDS) has named David Davidson director for operations. A former HUDS associate director, he had been serving as director for retail dining since returing to Harvard after several years as dining services director at Yale University and then Phillips Exeter Academy. His new responsibilities will include overseeing both residential and retail dining.
“The intensity of these programs—in the face of students and community needs and demands, changing industry standards, and challenging financial times—requires that we have someone with David’s leadership to drive continuous improvement,” says HUDS Director Ted Mayer. “His experience with Yale's House renewal program and the Yale Sustainable Food Project will help prepare us for our own efforts in these areas.”
