We combine our passion for coffee with technology, innovation, and a commitment to do the right thing for our customers and for the environment. Meet a few of our team members that make it happen.
Corporate VP of Sales
When Team Curtis takes the field with our latest equipment innovations, you’ll find Steve Bradley calling the shots. Over the past 20+ years, he’s helped us assemble, inspire, and coach the best sales force in the industry. Steve educates the sales team in equipment technology, beverage programs, and trends so that they are the experts that our customers can count on. Off the clock, he enjoys traveling, golfing, staying fit, plus spending time with his wife and three grown children.
Vice President, National Accounts
Frank is Curtis’s Convenience Store channel expert. He has been on the NACS Supplier Board of Directors for the past 12 years with the last 3 years serving as Vice Chair. His laser-like focus on what the customer needs and wants is the foundation for everything he does. And he does it well. With over 21 years of experience in the industry, he helps c-stores position themselves as a foodservice destination by providing the best coffee and tea program solutions. His goal-oriented focus continues into the weekend as he tries not to hurt himself (or others!) while cycling and going to the gym with his wife and son.
Vice President of Sales, East
Ron’s passion for the coffee industry knows no boundaries. His commitment and dedication to the coffee industry has earned him the NCA’s 2015 Volunteer of the Year. He currently serves as a Committee Chair on the NCA Board of Directors where he has served for more than 6 years. He prides himself in sharing his passion for coffee in leading his Eastern Sales team. When Ron isn’t brewing coffee, tasting coffee or talking about coffee, you’ll probably find him out on the road cycling or spending time with his wife of 30 years and his two beautiful children.
Vice President of Sales, West
Scott Grimes loves the coffee industry. And that’s why we love Scott Grimes. He is fully immersed in all things coffee and technology – the mechanics of brewing, equipment technology, and the latest and greatest communication tools. After graduating from UC Santa Barbara with a degree in sociology, Scott has spent years trying to learn everything there is to know in the foodservice and coffee industries. But, he’ll tell you he learns something new every day and he passes that knowledge onto his West Coast sales team that he manages and motivates. When not plugged in, Scott is most likely to be seen road cycling, golfing or spending time with family.
