Christine Marcus

CEO and Founder

Christine enjoyed a diverse background spanning the worlds of government, business and start-ups that has allowed her to observe culture’s power to either galvanize or stunt a business’ growth. Upon completing a successful career as a high-level executive at the U.S. Department of Energy, Christine was eager to explore more of her left-brain passions, including fashion, food, art, travel and design. While earning her MBA at MIT Sloan’s School of Management, Christine noticed an opportunity in the market – a chance to bridge the gap between local restaurants and employers wanting to provide inspired and extraordinary food for their staff. From there, Alchemista was born.
