Associate Manager, Multi-Brand Operations
Kristina is our resident superhero. She has the challenge of managing operations for all of our brands and is just so gosh darn good at it. She will answer all of your questions regarding Mercantile Hall’s bar operations and works with couples to identify their perfect bar package for their wedding celebration. She has a passion for her brides and fashion and during the day works with them to find their dream gown upstairs at Bon Bon Belle. And on top of all of that she earns her Superhero cape by doing everything with fantastic service and works on the development of our soon-to-be new concepts (will be sharing those with you shortly…can’t wait!…)
Passions: 1) Art (she is a super talented photographer), 2) Music (she worked at a radio station for many years). 3) and movies.

Ryan is a Burlington native and works by day in Marketing and at night with us (and we are so thankful to have him). He’s incredibly trustworthy and is a great partner to have at the end of your event.

Security & Evening Event Coordinator
Joe wears multiple hats really, really well. He’s a smart, all-around awesome dude that you’d want to have around doing things because you know they’ll get done. His head is going to get really huge after reading this about himself, but here’s a list of why we love Joe: responsive, smart, can-do attitude, charming, easy-going, and tough when you need him to be. He’s the guy who’s going to have your back and keep you safe. Joe’s the man.
Passion: 1) He designs apparel. Joe, you are seriously legit, dude.
