Company adds position as it sets sights on international expansion

Springfield, Massachusetts October 24, 2016 – Dennis Group, the largest food and beverage design firm in the United States, announced today the hire of Alan Pinsker as director of business development. Pinsker, who has over 25 years of business development experience in the space, will be based in the Atlanta, Georgia office.

Dennis Group, a full-service planning, architecture, engineering and construction management firm, counts some of the largest food and beverage companies in the world as clients. In addition to hiring Pinsker, the company bolstered its expansion efforts with the recent opening of a new office in São Paulo, Brazil that will cater to the South American market.

“Our company has always been very measured in how we grow, and over the past five years, we’ve doubled in size organically as a result of repeat business and positive referrals from our clients,” notes Dennis Group’s owner and President, Tom Dennis. “Hiring Alan as our first director of business development signals our commitment to continued strategic expansion both domestically and internationally.”

Pinsker, who holds a Master of Architecture degree from The Georgia Institute of Technology, joins Dennis Group from the Atlanta-based architecture and engineering firm, GreenbergFarrow, where he served as director of business development. During his tenure there, he cultivated key regional and national retail clients, such as Starbucks, Wendy’s, Chipotle, Arby’s, and Circle K.

“I am very excited to have the opportunity to bring my client-focused business approach to our industry-leading company, which is still very much in active growth-mode even after 30 years of successful practice,” stated Pinsker. “We have a great team that is committed to delivering outstanding value to our clients, and I look forward to expanding current partnerships and developing new ones.”
