Foodservice Leadership Team

Shaun TannerShaun Tanner

In addition to being the GM of the Foodservice Division, Shaun is…well, complex. He is a bit like the late Anthony Bourdain, as he’s a trained chef that has visited nearly 40 countries and will taste any food put in front of him. Asia is his favorite food hub, as he loves him some century eggs, fish head, and chicken feet. The list of foods that he won’t eat is short and quite odd; lamb, cheesecake, and sugar cookies. He also refuses to drink Baijiu (Chinese liquor), as he describe it tasting like “fermented snake ass,” but probably downs three Red Bulls every day. When he is not working, he is likely at home with his family, which consists of his wife, daughter, and a menagerie of animals, including parrots, dogs, and a guinea pig. When his family isn’t around, he will most likely be on the golf course or flying around in his lime-green ’66 Shelby Cobra replica. If Shaun could have one super power, he’d be a polyglot (someone who’s fluent in multiple languages).

Dennis HallDennis Hall

There’s not much more you need to know about Dennis other than he loves creating. A more-than-healthy woodworking habit keeps him busy at night and on the weekends in his home workshop. Oh, he’s also the Manager of Engineering, but that’s no big deal to him because it’s just second nature by now.
