Centerplate Names Interim President and CEO

Verros takes over for Hague.

Chris Verros was appointed acting president and chief executive officer for Centerplate, a contract foodservice operator. This move comes following the resignation of Desmond Hague from the company. The decision comes as a result of Hague's personal misconduct involving the mistreatment of an animal in his care.

A foodservice industry veteran with more than 35 years of experience, Verros has served as Centerplate’s chief operating officer since 2010. Prior to joining Centerplate, Verros was executive vice president of Boston Culinary Group and previously served as a group president of Fine Host Corporation, following the 1993 acquisition of FanFare, Inc., a company he co-founded in 1986.
