Assistant Director of Operations – Purchasing
Claire joined the City Market team in 2011 and has worked in several capacities throughout the store, naturally migrating towards retail operations. Raised in retail with a small local family business and having experience in management for a big box corporation, Claire developed an affinity for the finer points of retail purchasing and merchandising, and an appreciation for the co-op business model.
Claire played a key role in City Market's expansion to a multi-store format, and continues to help guide the Co-op towards centralized purchasing. With a passion for sustainable agriculture and local products, Claire enjoys working with Vermont farmers and producers as part of City Market’s role in growing the Vermont food economy.
A native Vermonter with a degree in education, Claire spends summers kayaking and hiking with friends, and winters hibernating with her impressive yarn collection.
