The Executive Conference starts on Sunday, April 28 with speakers Rob Lynch (President of Arby’s), Dr. David Kohl (Professor Emeritus, Virginia Tech), Michael Sansolo (Food Industry Expert and Consultant), Steve Sands (VP of Protein for Performance Foodservice) and Damian Mason (Agricultural Humorist).
