Paul Doucette

General Manager

General Manager Paul Doucette is the ultimate host, both in his own home and especially here at the Sawmill Banquet and Catering Center.

With a mantra of “It’s not just business; it’s personal”, Paul firmly believes that “Service is not an industry; but rather it is a state of mind.”

It is with this mentality, that Paul’s passion for an exceptional dining experience radiates through every event we are a part of. Paul’s appreciation and respect for our guests as well as every person in our organization is perhaps only matched by his love for a glass of fabulous red wine.
