40 under 40: Amy Peterson

PHOTO/Erika sidor 40 under Forty winners (from left) Emily DeGray, Alexander Dunn, Jonathan Miller and Amy Peterson.

Craft beer fans and foodies can thank Peterson for bringing their favorite things to downtown Worcester. In her role at the SMG-managed DCU Center, Peterson and her colleagues produced the now annual in-house craft beer festival Brew Woo and conceptualized the restaurant incubator for the facility, which now houses the Figs & Pigs Kitchen + Pantry.

She oversaw the marketing for the $31-million renovation to the arena until its 2013 completion and now supervises all aspects of brand management for the 14,000-seat facility.

Whose career would you like to emulate? We all have a different path, so I don’t try to live up to others. I have mentors and those whom I admire.

What should older generations know about the up-and-coming workforce? We don’t want to replace you. We are a generation driven by collaboration. Embrace us.

The people I work with would tell you I am…resourceful. I don’t claim to know it all, but I work hard to find out.

Who is the fictional character you are most like? Josephine ‘Jo’ March, the protagonist in Louisa May Alcott’s novel “Little Women,” who always strove to be better and achieve more.
