With more than 25 years of senior leadership experience, Jeff Kiesel is both the head and heart of Restaurant Technologies. He led the company to expand into new regional service locations and evolve the Total Oil Management™ portal to meet the ever-changing needs of our foodservice customers. Jeff joined in 2005 as CEO and stands by the set of values we call the 5 C’s – customer, character, commitment, courage and community. These values ensure that we put our customers and our community first – never being afraid to reach out to help, lead by example and always put our best foot forward. As part of this commitment, Jeff drives the Restaurant Technologies Cares program and is Chairman of the RTI Educational Foundation. He also serves on the Nixon Medical Board of Directors and the SALO Advisory Board.
Jeff held previous positions as CEO, president and senior vice president in both large and small companies across multiple industries, including 18 years with GE and GE Capital, and C-level positions with G&K Services and VIZTA3D Inc.
Jeff earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from Williams College, Williamstown, MA and an MBA from the Krannert School of Management, Purdue University. As a former college football player, he is also an Insanity Workout and P90X/P90X2 loyalist, so you can find him crunching and punching most days of the week.
Jeff will be participating in the breakout session on Talent Management.
We invite you to join Jeff and our other special guests for four days of exceptional programs, inspired discussions and networking with fellow mid-market CEOs at the 2016 CEO Connection Mid-Market Convention.
