The CEO’s View of Procurement: Strategies to Engage the C-Suite
Over the last 30 years, Louie Psallidas, President and CEO of Uno Chicago Grill, has risen up through the ranks of the restaurant industry to lead one of the biggest restaurant brands in the country. Having served as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) at John Harvard’s Brew House, Papa Gino’s, and Uno’s before ascending to the role of CEO in 2014, Louie has taken the traditional path towards leading a successful international business. His blend of financial acumen and operational efficiency, and an eye for customer experience, gives him a unique perspective as he leads Uno’s “from two feet over” from his former seat as CFO. It also gives him the ability to advise CPOs and those that aspire to the role on the best ways to engage and impress the C-Suite.
