Director, Account Management
Growing up, Cory aspired to play football for the University of Nebraska. Unfortunately, he injured his shoulder his senior year of high school and lost his scholarship offer to be a Husker. He decided to pursue that passion at the University of Kansas – Rock Chalk. Early in his freshman season, he hung up his helmet for good after yet another shoulder injury. Shoulder injuries became as common as Pequod’s pizza for dinner. He studied Economics and Spanish and spent three of his summers in Chicago interning. The Cubs and deep dish pizza helped convince him to move to Chicago permanently after graduating in 2004. Traveling, keeping an active lifestyle and of course, all things Chicago food, keep him happy and full.
