Our Team | ONE Team

One Team” is not only one of our six core values (along with Touching Lives, Integrity, Trust, Ownership, and Commitment), it is our rallying cry and the way we GA Foods Core Valuesapproach solving problems and running our business.  Many organizations talk about the importance of their team…of “pulling together as a team” when faced with adversity.  We at GA Foods have come to understand the importance of emphasizing that our company must collectively act as one team…and not a collection of teams with competing interests and priorities.  We can’t say…”this is a Quality Department problem, not a Customer Care Center problem” or “the Nutrition Team needs to fix this, it’s not a Kitchen issue.”  We continuously reinforce throughout the entire organization that it takes all of us to work as one team to deliver the very best tasting, most nutritious meals with the highest service levels at a cost effective price to meet our customers’ needs and serve the seniors, children, military, and disaster victims entrusted to our care as best as we possibly can.

The GA Foods team is a diverse and energetic group.  We are based in beautiful St. Petersburg, Florida, but can be found from Iowa to New Jersey, Texas to Georgia…and even more locations as we have become one of the fastest growing firms in our industry.  We are led by some of the most well-respected leaders in our field and have been guided by our founders, Ken and Jim LoBianco, who are still the company’s sole owners after more than 40 years of hard work of building GA Foods, one long-term customer at a time.  Below are quick bios of our top leadership group.

Jim-LoBianco-Dec2014
Jim LoBianco is a founder and Chairman of GA Foods.  Jim served as CEO from 1973 until his retirement in 2013.  He continues to be regularly involved as Chairman of the company…and is one of the two leaders of our GA Foods family.
Ken LoBianco is a founder and CEO of GA Foods.  Ken served previously as CFO, assuming the CEO role in 2013 at the time of his brother’s retirement.  Ken’s calm demeanor, integrity, and thoughtful leadership keep the organization focused on our priority of nourishing those in our care and serving the agencies from which they receive support.  (Ken’s shy and doesn’t like portraits.)
 Glenn Davenport
Glenn Davenport, President, is a veteran food industry leader, serving previously as CEO of Morrison Management Specialists (a member of the Compass Group) in Atlanta, GA, where he grew a spin-off division into a leading healthcare food and nutrition company that more than than tripled in size under his leadership.  Glenn now leads our team as President, leveraging his vast industry experience and an intense drive for excellence.  He joined the company in 2013.
