Speaker Bio
Skip Kimpel, CIO with 4R Restaurant Group, has implemented a wide variety of technology solutions that has allowed the company to grow and compete in today’s aggressive market. Within this 14-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 4R Restaurant Group, Kimpel served as the VP of IT for Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza, a 67 unit chain across the country. Prior to that, he served as IT leadership for both retail and the medical industry. 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 member of the Board of Governors for the Restaurant Technology Network, State Board Member for the Florida Restaurant Lodging Association (FRLA) as well as a Central Florida Board Member of the FRLA.
