I brings nearly 25 years' experience working with every facet of the foodservice industry. At the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation, where I was Vice President, Sales, I worked with state restaurant associations, distributors, academic and national chain customers, and many other industry players to carry out the mission of the NRAEF, including e-learning and training initiatives. Before joining the NRAEF I was director of national accounts and research and development for Grecian Delight, a maker of top quality ethnic foods for the foodservice and retail markets. I also worked with such top chains as Wendy's, Applebees, Taco Bell, and ARAMARK. John's thorough knowledge of the industry on every level is a key asset in helping clients develop and implement an e-learning solution strategy that meets their needs cost-effectively.
