Ovations Food Services, a provider of food and beverages services to facilities worldwide, named those promoted to senior-level positions at the company.
Steve Gregosky is now senior vice president of client relations, and Charles Lawrence is the senior vice president of business development.
“We see great opportunities both within our core industry as well as outside of it,” said Ken Young, president and founder, Ovations Food Services. “We have set aggressive goals, and with the expertise of this experienced team, we anticipate a great deal of success.”
Formerly senior vice president of business development, Gregosky’s new focus will be on client relations and services as well as championing new innovation throughout Ovations’ client venues. Since joining the Ovations team in 2001, he has played a key strategic role in the company’s success story, helping grow the company from 10 operations over a decade ago to well over 135 venues with revenues in excess of $300 million. Gregosky has more than 40 years of experience in the industry, over a decade of which is with Ovations.
Lawrence, who began with Ovations in 2006 as vice president of business development, has been a catalyst for growth and client retention during his time at the company. Recently attaining his MBA from St. Leo University, he is a proven leader and will now lead Ovations’ business development team.
These changes come on the heels of Jen Zick, a seven-year veteran in the industry, joining the team as regional vice president of business development for the West.
