Founder - President
National Accounts Manager
My name is Vinnie, I was Born and raised on the Northwest Side of Chicago. I graduated from Eastern Illinois University with a degree in Business. I followed my passion for food after college and got a Culinary Certificate, where I learned the importance of quality ingredients. After long hours in the front and back of the house, I decided to use my knowledge of food ingredients on a larger scale. I am now the National Accounts Manager of GRD and I get to talk about high quality ingredients every single day!
Account Manager & Nutrition Specialist
My name is Haley Barth. I grew up in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago and graduated from Iowa State University in May of 2020 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutritional Science. There, I had the opportunity to study all aspects of food and nutrition. I studied global and local food systems, food interaction, as well as nutrition and body processes. I wanted to take my knowledge of the science side of food and apply it to a business setting and being an Account Manager and Nutritional Specialist for GRD allows me to do just that. It is a unique experience that allows me to use my knowledge of food and nutrition every day. I would be happy to help with any R&D projects or assist you with any questions that you have!
