Miyu Ohyama

Event Operations Manager

Miyu has held various critical behind-the-scenes roles at Railtown Catering since she started at the company in 2016 and proven herself to be one of the company’s most integral members.

Born in Japan, Miyu followed the lead of two older siblings who pursued their education abroad in Eastern Europe, but instead opted to study overseas in Alberta, Canada. After falling in love with the wild nature and culture she experienced while residing in her temporary home away from home, she decided to settle on the West Coast for college and planted her roots.

Accredited in Event Décor and Event & Wedding Planning at QC Event School, Miyu first joined the Railtown Catering family as an operations supervisor and was promoted to the role of operations assistant manager one year later. Since March of 2019, she has held the title of Event Operations Manager, helping to coordinate and execute logistics for a variety of events, liaising between the sales, corporate and culinary teams and providing leadership and support to the entire team.

“Since I have joined Railtown I have experienced so much and been challenged every day and it is truly an honour to be a part of such a hardworking and talented team,” she says. “It just feels like home here — I’m so lucky to be able to work alongside them as we work to help our clients achieve their goals and deliver above and beyond their vision.”
