Stefanie Aitken

Director of Events

A seasoned veteran of the hospitality industry, Stefanie Aitken knows that no detail is too small and no request too impossible when it comes to planning and pulling off the perfect party, wedding or special event.

Born and raised in Ontario, Stefanie came to Vancouver in 2007 to pursue a degree in art history at the University of British Columbia and quickly fell in love with the mountains, ocean and relaxed atmosphere of the West Coast. After working at Granville Island’s Edible Canada, she dove headlong into the catering and events world, working at Vancouver’s top catering companies, before joining the Railtown Catering team in early 2019.

At Railtown Catering, Stefanie utilizes her extensive knowledge and talents to provide superior customer service from first point of contact through implementation to help her clients custom-design a wide range of truly memorable events.

“As someone who likes to keep busy and try new things, I really appreciate that this job affords me the opportunity to create unique event experiences again and again,” she says. “At Railtown, there are so many different avenues we can use to approach food, beverage, display and décor. We realize that when it comes to events, things are constantly changing and evolving, and being able to surpass the expectations of each client is of vital importance to all of us and something we take great pride in.”
