The Rockville catering company celebrates the new year by bolstering its team with the highly experienced recruit.

Saturday, 9th January. Maryland, USA: Caribbean Caterers is pleased to announce the hire of Caroline Kirkland to the position of Executive Sales Manager. Caroline will oversee all catering sales divisions, building a team of dynamic event personnel to best serve every client’s needs.

Caroline is originally from the Nashville, TN area, and graduated from Middle Tennessee State University. She entered the hospitality industry as a large party coordinator for fine dining restaurants such as Ruth’s Chris and the Melting Pot. From fine dining, Caroline moved into the hotel world. There, she worked throughout the industry as a catering, convention services, and executive meeting manager. She has designed upscale events for as many as 6,000 attendees. Caroline comes to Caribbean Caterers from Hilton, where she worked most recently as a director of catering and events.

Caroline finds nothing more rewarding than executing the perfect special event, knowing that every guest has full confidence in the service she provides. Recently engaged, Caroline is enjoying bringing this care and attention to her own wedding planning. She and her fiancé, who also works in the food and beverage industry, currently reside in Rockville. Caroline is thrilled to be joining the Caribbean Caterers team!

Caribbean Caterers was born out of persistent requests from Gillian de Souza’s DC area acquaintances for the food that they experienced in her vegetarian fine dining restaurants in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. The company embodies Gillian’s passion for sharing rich, inspired dining experiences with others. Starting with a limited number of small events, Caribbean Caterer’s business grew quickly by word of mouth from one satisfied client to another. Caribbean Caterers now brings its trademark style of fine food, impeccable service, and attention to detail to personal parties, weddings, fundraisers, and gala events around the DC area.

In 2020, Caribbean Caterers met the challenge of helping their clientele through a difficult year by solidifying their base and pivoting to micro-weddings, while identifying key personnel who could lead the effort to ensure that even in a time of pandemic and social distancing, food could bring people together. Caroline Kirkland is the person who will help lead this charge in 2021, building a team of dynamic event personnel to continue to help clients plan their dream events.
