Kimberly Caldwell, Director of Operations, brings not only more than a decade of hospitality experience to the position, but also, as an Orange County native, a strong connection to the community Sapphire Catering serves. Her resume is both broad and deep, chronicling a long and successful career in management of restaurants and luxury hotels, most recently at Montage Laguna Beach, where she gained a reputation as a creative problem solver and was often called upon to lead task force teams at sister properties. Kimberly shares Chef Azmin’s deep appreciation for global cuisine. Before joining the Sapphire Catering team, she devoted more than a year to travel in both Southeast Asia and Central America, immersed in diverse cultures and cuisines. She emerged having fallen in love with the details that make each dish unique as well as the rich cultures from which they originate.
