A SPOTLIGHT ON WHAT’S NEW AT RIPPE ASSOCIATES

New Team Members and a Transition to Design Principal


Rippe Associates, Inc., announced it has hired several new team members recently. Eric Goodrich has been hired as an Operations Project Manager. Eric has extensive operations experience, with 10 years in Higher Education, and is looking forward to the challenge of merging his project management and operations experience. Marcy Salisbury was also hired as an Operations Project Manager. Marcy’s expertise in foodservice project management will help the team and our clients clarify design intent in drawings and documents.


Terry Pellegrino, Principal, will transition to the role of Design Principal. In her new role, she will focus on the programming and schematic design phases of projects. As those progress into and beyond the schematic design phase, Terry’s team will continue to manage the remainder of the project. Over several years, Terry has transferred the knowledge she has acquired in her 34 years with Rippe Associates to members of her team. Starting in 2020, Terry is excited to work reduced hours and have more free time to spend with her grandchildren and on her many other passions.


Rippe Associates congratulates Terry on her new position and welcomes its new team members. We appreciate Terry’s contributions to our mission of providing Kitchens that Work™ and look forward to the contributions Eric and Marcy will bring to the team!
