Jeffrey R. Kiesel
With more than 20 years of senior leadership experience, Jeff Kiesel is both the head and heart of Restaurant Technologies, Inc (RTI). As a savvy business leader he helped the company expand into new regional service locations and evolve the Total Oil Management™ portal to meet the ever-changing needs of our food service customers. Jeff joined RTI in 2005 as CEO and stands by the RTI set of values, which they call the 5 C’s – customer, character, commitment, courage and community. These values ensure that they put their customers and community first – never being afraid to reach out to help, lead by example and always put their best foot forward. As part of this commitment, Jeff helps drive the RTI Cares program and is Chairman of the RTI Educational Foundation. He also serves on the Nixon Medical Board of Directors, the Salo Advisory Board and has been a past board advisor to Omni Cable.

Jeff earned a Bachelor’s degree in economics from Williams College in Williamstown, Mass., and an MBA from the Krannert School of Management, Purdue University. He is also an Insanity Workout and P90X/P90X2 loyalist, so you can find him crunching and punching most days of the week.
