From the National Restaurant Association
Tom Bené has been the Association and Foundation’s CEO for less than six months. In that short period of time, he has already demonstrated the value of his seasoned leadership and decades of industry experience, and he is well-positioned to continue to guide the industry into the post-pandemic landscape. Never before has the Association’s support of its constituency been so critical—advocating at the federal, state, and local levels on behalf of the restaurant industry. One of Tom’s initial priorities is to ensure that the industry as ONE—chains, independents, franchisees, the national and state restaurant associations, suppliers, and distributors—is aligned on the industry’s recovery.
