Fausto Pifferrer

Bryan Scott


Bryan joined the Blue Elephant Team in 2018 and brought 20 years of hospitality experience with him. His eye for creative details and thoughtful menu planning & execution have upped our culinary game and taken our menus to new and exciting places.

Justin Badorek


Justin has been with us since the very beginning. Chef Justin is our MacGyver – he can make anything happen in a field kitchen and laughs in the face of the unexpected challenges that off-premise catering can present. He is the calm eye of the storm in the Blue Elephant’s kitchen.

Lindsay Anderson

Office Assistant and Assistant to the Vice President

Lindsay is our office manager, sounding board, organizer, assistant to Fausto, and the heart of the office. We would be lost without her.

Dominique Beaulieu

Event Producer

Dominique has been part of the Blue Elephant team since early 2017. She loves all things weddings and inspires all of us to grow and stretch every day. She loves her clients and her bulldog, Moose, not necessarily in that order.

Nicki Libbey

Event Producer

Nicki is our newest team member. She joined us in 2019 after a successful career in the hospitality industry in southern Maine. Unofficially known as the “Mayor of Wells,” Nicki’s energy and ideas have brought inspiration to our creative table, and we are so glad that she found us!
