Exec Profiles 2014

UBC Food Society has a fun collection of executives that even Gordon Ramsay would befriend. You will want to meet them, as they are all esteemed members of society. To be a member of UBC Food Society is like eating from the plate of Kings on the Iron Throne. Or being Bobby Flay. Same feeling.
