Over the course of his career, he has spent 9 years with speciality retailer Sid Wainer & Son, where he sold high-end ingredients to leading hotels and restaurants on Boston’s North Shore. His taste for quality produce then took him to Verde Farms, where he led national sales and R&D for this startup selling premium grass-fed beef.
