Darin is an incredibly talented professional. He started working with me at the executive chef at one of our community restaurants. He completely exceeded our expectations every day. He never settled for what was expected. He always made things better - from the quality of food served to the way he treated his team to the satisfaction of his customers. He was promoted to work in the corporate office where he had the opportunity to influence a broad audience. He really help set the vision and the direction of the food and beverage program at the company as well impacting the chefs we hired throughout the organization. In addition to the technical skills that Darin brought to the table, he was a leader and a positive influencer in the company. His integrity is second to none. I hope that our professional paths cross again!
