Zak was exposed to the food industry from early on and grew up with a strong understanding of how it operates. From picking orders in the refrigerated warehouse, to making deliveries as a truck driver’s assistant, to gathering with customers at events- Zak understands the priorities of principals and customers. Over many years, Zak observed firsthand from his father and other key mentors, the importance of relationships. Zak graduated from the University of Connecticut and received his Master’s Degree from Manhattanville College. After college, he worked his way up learning all the angles of OMNI- Retail, Customer Service, and Account Management. Zak now runs the day to day operations of OMNI. Zak’s favorite part about OMNI is being in the center of the action. Outside of the office Zak enjoys basketball and Spartan races.
