In 2015 I left Google to join the Portillo's senior leadership team as the first ever Marketing employee, reporting to our CEO. When I joined Portillo's, we had 38 restaurants across four states, and our founder had just sold to Berkshire Partners. Today, we have 75 restaurants across ten states, and we are proudly listed on the Nasdaq as PTLO. I oversee four great teams: 1. Brand Marketing & Communications 2. Guest Services 3. Field Marketing & Brand Partnerships 4. Off-Premise Dining, including Portillo's Catering and third party delivery I lead the digital transformation team that has built our online ordering platform, and I oversaw the launch of delivery at all Portillo's nationwide. I also serve on our menu strategy team and our real estate committee. I was a cashier at Portillo's in high school and on breaks while in college. My favorite menu item is our beef n' cheddar croissant. You haven't lived until you've tried one.
