Born and raised in Saratoga, Devin took influence from her dad’s architectural drawings and became an illustrator early in life. She followed that passion to get her Graphic Design / Marketing Management Bachelor’s degree from State University of New York at Cortland.
While still in college, Devin began working events for Saratoga National, moving from Marketing Coordinator to Marketing Manager. She has been an invaluable resource over her 11-year career with Angelo Mazzone, helping build the brand of Prime at Saratoga National Golf Club. Today she oversees marketing for both Mazzone Hospitality and Saratoga National Golf Club.
Devin loves going out to eat, especially for a Spicy Margarita and a Cowboy Steak. Mexican cuisine is another favorite. She constantly has her eye out for the competition, taking notes on (a marketing crush) STK Steakhouse’s brand and web presence, among others, while enjoying dining. When not at work, Devin can be found snowboarding the Northeast and enjoying summers on Lake George.
We are proud to announce Eliyana Keisler as our Sales Manager of Saratoga National. Eliyana hit the ground running in the Events and Food Service Industry right out of high school. She started at Venezia Pizza and Pasta in Clifton Park and climbed the ranks, leading the catering and events. She fell in love with the fast pace, career opportunities and community involvement where she quickly gained experience. Through a few fateful deliveries to our team at Mazzone Hospitality, she decided to apply and has been part of our team ever since.
“I Love being part of the Mazzone Team, everyone is driven and so quick to teach. I see a lot of opportunities ahead of me. We make people in our community feel special at their events and that makes the busy work environment totally worth it.”
Like most of us, Eliyana is a foodie and loves trying new restaurants. A recent favorite was La Cantina Italiana in Framingham, Massachusetts. “Everything was delicious. It inspired me to start buying their “Fanny” salad dressings at the supermarket.”
When not running events for Mazzone, Eliyana loves the contrast of the peace and quiet at home. She enjoys reading True Crime books and Historical Fiction.
Join us in congratulating Eliyana in her new position as Sales Manager at Saratoga National.
With over 13 years of experience working Banquets and Off-Premise Events, Nick Raco joined Saratoga National Golf Club in May 2016 as Banquet Manager. He started in the hospitality field with Classe Catering in 2005 as a Banquet Server, becoming the Director of Operations a couple years later.
Following Mazzone Hospitality’s acquisition of Classe Catering in January of 2013, Nick then became part of Mazzone Hospitality’s Off-Premise team as a Warehouse Supervisor. Over the next few years, he learned much as he worked throughout Mazzone Hospitality’s numerous companies, including Glen Sanders Mansion, Hilton Garden Inn, and the Hall of Springs.
In Spring 2015, he graduated with an Associate’s Degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management from Schenectady Community College. Nick’s greatest enjoyment from managing events is the sincere appreciation of our clients for fulfilling their special day.
Born in Gloversville, NY, Echo’s interest in hospitality was sparked at a young age by her dad, who spent his career in the hotel business. She studied Event Management at SUNY Delhi and graduated in May 2021.
What drives her passion for hospitality? “Even when I’m working an event, I feel like I am a part of the celebration. I love planning an event from start to finish and seeing it brought to life.”
Echo enjoys spending her free time volunteering with the Fulton County SPCA and playing recreational soccer.
