Patrick McCarthy Selected for Leadership Program
SOUTH HADLEY — Patrick McCarthy, Sodexo Dining Services general manager for the Loomis Communities, has been selected for the Sodexo National Emerging Leaders program, joining 29 of his peers who have been identified as leaders in their field.
The Sodexo Emerging Leaders program consists of an intensive, nine-month leadership-development course focusing on leadership at a strategic level. The course study includes trainings at the Sodexo North American headquarters in Gaithersburg, Md., as well as peer project assignments and online interactive trainings.
“This is a dynamic and challenging opportunity to develop strategic leadership skills and work in partnership with senior leaders on high-visibility business situations,” McCarthy said.
Prior to working for Sodexo and the Loomis Communities, McCarthy attended classes at the Culinary Institute of America and owned restaurants in the Pioneer Valley.
With a mission of enriching the lives of older adults, the Loomis Communities offers independent-living apartments and cottages, assisted living, and skilled nursing care on four campuses in the Pioneer Valley: Applewood in Amherst, Loomis House in Holyoke, Loomis Lakeside at Reeds Landing in Springfield, and Loomis Village in South Hadley.
