FE&S Names 2018 Top Achiever Award Winners

Foodservice Equipment & Supplies will present a quintet of foodservice professionals with its 2018 Top Achiever Awards. Traditionally these awards have recognized excellence among foodservice equipment and supplies dealers, consultants, manufacturers’ reps and service agents. Beginning this year, though, FE&S will add a foodservice operator to the roster of award winners. 

The following individuals will receive their awards during FE&S’ 2018 Dealer of the Year and Industry Awards Gala, which will take place on May 19 at the Chicago Four Seasons Hotel.

Foodservice Equipment & Supplies proudly introduces the winners of its 2018 Top Achiever Awards:

“Each of FE&S’ 2018 Top Achiever Award recipients are more than leaders within their own businesses,” said Joseph Carbonara, FE&S’ editorial director. “Their selfless, forward thinking and collaborative approach continues to drive the industry forward. They do so by embracing technology, working side by side with their supply chain partners and peers and being excellent ambassadors for not only their respective segments but for the overall foodservice industry. Because of their actions, Mary Angela, Joe, Christine, Glenn and Dave will continue to make the foodservice industry the career path of choice for future generations. We look forward to celebrating their legacies and continued success on May 19.”

FE&S is able to present its 2018 Dealer of the Year and Industry Awards Gala thanks to the generous support of its three platinum sponsors: True RefrigerationUnified Brands and Welbilt.

FE&S’ Dealer of the Year and Industry Awards Gala recognizes the foodservice community’s brightest stars by presenting them with some of the industry’s most time-honored awards. Held each year on the Saturday of the National Restaurant Association’s trade show in Chicago, this event brings together the best of the best to celebrate the on-going success of the foodservice industry. Other awards to be presented the evening of May 19 include the Dealer of the Year Award to Boelter and the Hall of Fame Award to Kathleen Seelye of Ricca Design, as well as the yet-to-be-named winners of the Facility Design Project of the Year and DSR of the Year.
