rebecca peters, catering sales manager
Rebecca has been working in the hospitality industry for 12 years, beginning in her hometown of Johnsburg, IL and following her passion to Chicago to attend Robert Morris University. There she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Hospitality Management with an Associate’s in Culinary Arts. During school and after graduation, Rebecca dabbled in different aspects of the industry before finally landing in catering, which had been her goal all along. She started at the Peninsula Hotel, where she honed her guest service skills and trained in the catering department, helping to plan everything from small meetings to three-day conferences.
Rebecca joined the Harry Caray’s catering team in February of 2017. She plans and executes events at the River North Steakhouse, the Tavern at Navy Pier and at many off-premise venues throughout the city. With her experience, optimism, and keen eye for detail, Rebecca truly enjoys assisting her guests through each step in planning the perfect event for their needs.
In her spare time, Rebecca likes to cheer on the Bears (a fruitless endeavor, she knows), cook up new recipes at home, and travel as much as possible.
