Kris Klinger, Senior Associate Vice President for Auxiliary Services, announced two changes to the department’s leadership team and named interim leaders to head Drumlins Country Club and the University’s Food Services and Hospitality department.
Eamon Lee Named Interim Executive Director of Hospitality
Executive Director of Hospitality Jon Webster will depart Syracuse University effective July 15, 2022. Webster articulated a forward-thinking vision of Hospitality and Food Services at Syracuse University, and consistently demonstrated his passion for helping the Food Services department grow and flourish. Executive Chef Eamon Lee will step into the interim role as executive director while a search begins for a permanent leader. Chef Lee will continue the work he and Webster began, including a comprehensive review and refresh of residential dining services that will roll out throughout the 2022-23 academic year. He is an enthusiastic member of the Syracuse University community, a man who bleeds orange and will offer steady guidance to the Food Services department throughout the transition period.
Randy King Named Interim Director of Drumlins Country Club
Chris Myslow has concluded his time at Syracuse University as director of Drumlins Country Club. As the club’s Board of Directors begins the search for a new director, Klinger has asked Randy King to step in as the club’s interim director.
King, who has held the role of Director of Operations at Drumlins since April 2022, has previous leadership experience at other country clubs. His willingness to dive in at Drumlins and hit the ground running will ensure that the club’s members, guests, visitors, and neighbors who play golf or tennis, enjoy the pool, dine at the bistro or host an event, tournament or camp will continue to enjoy a first-rate experience. Randy will work closely with department leaders at the club to act as a conduit to relay information and solicit guidance between staff and Klinger and the Drumlins Board of Directors.
Auxiliary Services will provide further updates when permanent leaders for Drumlins and Food Services have been identified.
