Brad Pierce Wins Young Lion Award

Brad Pierce is the winner of the Young Lion Award for 2012/2013. No, this is not the Fiction award and Ethan Hawke will not be presenting the award. This Young Lion award, presented by Foodservice Equipment Reports magazine, honors professionals at or under the age of 40. Professionals who do not just contribute but dedicate their work to improving the standard of excellence. Brad Pierce is recognized for his contributions to the dealer segment of the industry.

Reflected in his personal website's title, Brad In Motion, that is exactly how our interview happened, in motion.

Q:How long have you been in the industry?
A:I've been involved with the industry since I was really young. Essentially my entire life, foodservice equipment has been in my blood.

Q:What contributions does the Foodservice equiptment industry need?
A:
The industry needs dealers to stand together and collectively convey their value to the rest of the industry. There's training, knowledge, inventory, service and support that all go into servicing the customer. It's important that we as dealers convey this value proposition to our end-user customers, as well as to our manufacturer partners. We're much more than a middle-man in the equation, we provide value each and every day and are proud of the markets and customers we serve.

Q: What did you do to have such an impact?
A:
I'm not good at sitting on the sidelines and would much rather be in the game, so when the first opportunity for leadership within the industry happened, I jumped at the opportunity. Since that time, I've been involved in writing countless industry magazine articles to help other dealers, spoken at conventions, hosted dealerround-tables become active in buying group committees, and much more. I've also served as a board member for the Foodservice Equipment Distributors Association (FEDA) and currently serve as the Vice-President for the organization. This industry has given a lot to me, both personally and professionally, so it feels fantastic to be able to give back to it.
"We've got great staff members and great vendor partners, this award is more a reflection of all of them than myself. There are numerous people in this industry who've paved the way and given me wisdom and knowledge over the years which has certainly been a key to our success. I appreciate each and every one of them more than words alone can express." - Brad Pierce
