Jeff Kiesel

CEO of Restaurant Technologies

 Jeff has led RT’s transformation from a small regional Midwest service provider to an industry-leading national player. Having excelled in senior sales and marketing leadership roles for more than 20 years at General Electric, Jeff has helped lead the expansion of RT’s service offering to many key foodservice brands across the country.

Jeff partnered with Aurora in 2015 to further invest in sales force and marketing capabilities to penetrate the large, untapped portion of RT’s addressable market as well as sharpen the focus on field productivity. Additionally, Jeff and his team have recently completed RT’s first acquisitions and are strategically targeting additional complementary assets. In addition to his team at Aurora, Jeff has partnered with independent directors Larry Bossidy, Charlie Crew, Todd Dunn, Bill Prather, and Paul Shelton.
