Senior Director of Culinary Development
Sodexo North America
Rob has a flair for creating authentically-inspired food for his customers. But, after nearly 40 years in the food industry, his expertise extends beyond culinary delights—including purchasing and supply chain, consumer insight research and project management. As a leader, he inspires his team to find innovative solutions to address customer needs both now and in the future. This has driven a clear strategic focus on “Sustainable Eating” – plant powered cuisines that customers are looking for that will drive environmental improvements for Sodexo and our client partners.
Rob has experience in all facets of food service management, including experience at noted establishments such as the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the Capital Hilton Hotel, as well as nearly 25 years with Sodexo – most of which was spent in the Universities Segment.
Rob is media aware and focused, with nearly 5000 followers on LinkedIn and actively creating critical exposure for Sodexo both internally to clients and consumers, and externally to the marketplace.
