Jane Stoddard, Managing Partner
Jane is a managing partner at Cru where she focuses her efforts on day-to-day operations, special events and personnel. Her resume includes the elite roles of general manager and director of operations while on Nantucket as well as over a decade of event planning experience.
Prior to her roles in the restaurant industry, Jane was the Juice Guys Care Director/Island Liaison for Nantucket Nectars and served as Development Director of the Nantucket Boys & Girls Club. Her commitment to the restaurant industry began with her first jobs as a young teenager. She has always been passionate about food and wine and was organically drawn to the restaurant business. Her attention to detail, tireless energy, and ability to hire, train, and coach a staff of diverse individuals into a cohesive enthusiastic team would be integral to the success of any restaurant, particularly one that would attract a discerning clientele.
Jane first visited Nantucket eighteen years ago and the island became home instantly. She has a deep love of the ocean and can often be found swimming in the island's shallow waters, enjoying the gorgeous beaches with friends or running on its extensive nature trails. In the off season, Jane is based in Miami with her husband and spends as much time as possible traveling around the globe learning and experiencing new wines, cuisines and cultures.
Jane earned a Bachelor's of Arts degree from the University of Richmond.
