Senior Vice President, CSSI Marketing & Culinary

For Kevin, foodservice is truly in his blood. As part of a third-generation catering family, Kevin gained hands-on industry knowledge before accepting a managerial role at The Food Group. Sensing a need in the marketplace for R&D-driven interface between food manufacturers and the industry’s top chain operators, Kevin founded CSSI in 2005. The company has grown to fill a unique niche, combining the talents of chefs, dietitians, marketers and advertising creatives into comprehensive agency services and culinary-focused strategy.
