CEO of CAST Group of Companies
I have had the privilege of actively working with Larry and Richard for the last ten years. I first met them in late 1999, a full 20 years ago, just prior to the management team of Prime Restaurants completing a 100% buyout. I was the CEO and a significant shareholder. At the time we were seeking potential financial partners. Financing was sourced elsewhere, but we stayed in contact as our businesses grew.”LEARN MORE
