A key member of Frontline International’s leadership team has been promoted to a new position. Giovanni Brienza, a longtime fixture with the company, is now senior vice president.
“For more than 15 years, Giovanni has been an integral part of our continued growth,” says John Palazzo, president. “It gives me great pleasure to announce this well-deserved promotion.”
A native of Italy, Brienza earned his engineering degree from the University of Cassino before moving to the United States and joining the company in 2004. In his previous role as vice president, he was responsible for furthering the company mission of savings, safety, and sustainability through smarter use, storage, disposal, and management of cooking oil.
In his new role, Brienza will continue with these efforts while adding new responsibilities such as long-term strategic planning, overseeing ongoing product enhancements, optimization of workflow, and resource acquisition.
“Frontline is my home, and I look forward to being here for many years to come,” says Brienza. “Our technology leads the industry, and our team is strong. I’m invigorated to share our vision of a safer, sustainable, more profitable commercial kitchen with more markets around the world.”
With two engineers in the top spots—company president Palazzo is also an engineer—Frontline International has built its reputation on using creative problem-solving and the latest technological advancements to revolutionize all aspects of handling cooking oil.
