Vice President of Information Technology
Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza
Skip Kimpel, Vice President of Information Technology with Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza has implemented a wide variety of technology solutions that has allowed the company to grow and compete in today’s aggressive market. Within this 65-unit organization, his responsibilities include all areas of technology not only at the store level but also within corporate departments. He views data as the number one asset that a company has at its disposal and believes they can use it in their arsenal to hone in on business strategy and solid decision making.
Kimpel’s focus has always been on the area of data collection, data warehousing and all the technologies behind that, including the use and successful implementation of API integrations. Having a solid background in data and programming has given Skip a unique edge to be able to rapidly construct solutions that are both effective and cost saving.
With over 20 years of experience in the technology field, prior to joining Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza in the restaurant industry, Kimpel served in both the retail and medical industries. This vast array of verticals has allowed Kimpel the opportunity of having exposure to multiple areas of technology and has been able to use these experiences to cross pollinate technology solutions that are effective and very often “outside of the box.”
Kimpel is a current Board Member and active participant of the NRA IT Executive Study Group.
