Todd has over 17 years of experience in the business, having started out working under his father’s direction. He learned every aspect of the foodservice design and equipment business, working his way up from administrative assistant with an office literally in a closet, up through the project management department, on to estimating and finally taking the leadership helm from his dad in 2015. He continues to grow and improve processes at Great Lakes West, living by his motto: Be a better you than you were yesterday!
Todd participates in a leadership role outside the office as a member of the SEFA Equipment Vendor committee where he assists in negotiating the best vendor deals for the SEFA buying group. He believes strongly in being the best business partner possible and strives to create long lasting partnerships rather than transactional deals.
A Michigan native, Todd is setting the path for the next generation of great leaders at Great Lakes West with his wife Lisa and their 2 kids Madelyn and Brady. Somehow, he still finds time to play golf and has been known to make it rain on the basketball court now and then! Family is always his first priority, and he devotes quality time to them daily and on family vacations.
