Steve has been in foodservice publishing for more than 35 years. After 20 years with Restaurants & Institutions, then the leading publication in the industry, he joined Plate shortly after its first issue was published in 2002, and has led Plate ever since. Plate has succeeded and grown in a tough media environment. However what makes Plate so rewarding for Steve is its having a clear and consistent mission, executing at such a high quality level, and having such a great team, committed and working together. Steve has been recognized by the International Foodservice Manufacturers Association. He is a regular at the National Restaurant Association’s Marketing Executives Group.
He loves Oregon Pinot Noirs and Washington State Syrahs. He also loves outdoor dining with Tony Priolo at Piccolo Sogno, though his favorite meal would have to be his wife’s osso bucco with risotto.
