Atlanta-based Paradies, the most highly-awarded airport concessionaire in the United States, announces the addition of Bill Casey to its executive leadership team as the Senior Vice President of Food and Beverage.
Casey, a seasoned veteran with more than 30 years of experience in the airport food and beverage industry, will lead Paradies’ growth in brand development, industry partnerships, strategic planning and overall operational efficiency.
An established and influential player within the airport concessions industry, Casey joins Paradies from HMS Host where he most recently held the position of Vice President, Food & Beverage Restaurant Portfolio and developed brand offerings.
Casey inherits a rapidly growing food and beverage division at Paradies which was most recently recognized with top industry awards, including: “Best Food & Beverage Program” by Airport Council International–North America (ACI-NA) for Long Beach Airport, and “Best Restaurant Design” by Airport Revenue News (ARN) for Pittsburgh International Airport’s Bar Symon, a partnership with United Concessions Group and Chef Michael Symon.
“We are very excited to have Bill join our dynamic group and we look forward to learning from the wealth of experience and well-established airport community contacts he brings,” said Gregg Paradies, president and CEO of Paradies. “His passion for developing programs with exceptionally high standards combined with his enthusiasm for building strong employee teams will be a powerful catalyst for the continued growth and expansion of this division and our company.”
