PAULUS HONORED FOR DINING SERVICES SUCCESS
As Napoleon famously said, "An army marches on its stomach." Translate that to a university setting, where thousands of students - plus faculty, staff and
visitors - must be fed every day in order to keep them functioning at their best. But unlike an army, whose soldiers must eat what they are given,
university dining services must be responsive and provide an array of menus to meet an array of tastes and needs.
Luckily for BGSU, Dining Director Michael Paulus understands that imperative and is adept at serving up a satisfying experience for his many clients.
Paulus works with Chartwells, a division of Compass Group, which provides dining services for
more than 210 colleges and universities around the country, including BGSU.
In recognition of his service, Paulus was recently presented the Presidents Circle Award by Chartwells for outstanding achievement in the "Community
Pillar" category, which signifies "taking our lead from our guests," according to Chartwells Regional Vice President Kevin Lyden.
Paulus was honored at the company's annual summit in Chicago. He was among those receiving awards for "Living the Brand Pillars," which also include
cuisine, culture, ideas and people.
"Michael was nominated for his award for his work with the BGSU community, his ability to listen to our guests, satisfy their needs, and deliver a 'WOW'
experience with every meal served," Lyden said.
