Ledo Pizza announced its Chief Marketing Officer Will Robinson was named the new chairman of the board (COB) for the Restaurant Association of Maryland.

Robinson was officially elected by other members of RAM as the chairman of the board and will hold the position until June 14, 2023. With nearly 30 years of experience in marketing and restaurant operations, Robinson has worked tirelessly to promote the industry to legislators and future employees. As COB, his duties include being responsible for setting direction for the agenda/board meetings and overseeing all operations of the association and the board of directors.

“I am incredibly honored to be chosen as chairman of the board for the Restaurant Association of Maryland,” Robinson says. “Ever since I started off as a server at Ledo Pizza, I knew this company would provide such a great foundation for me to grow and make a difference within the industry. I’m excited to bring the skills and experiences I have gained thus far to RAM and can’t wait to build better restaurant communities throughout our great state.”

Robinson’s journey with Ledo Pizza began when he was a server in 1996 before he worked his way up to vice president for the brand in 2008 and eventually CMO in 2020. He sits on the executive committee for the Restaurant Association of Maryland and previously served as chairman of the Restaurant Association of Maryland Education Foundation.

“Our mission is to promote, protect and improve Maryland’s foodservice and hospitality industry,” says CEO and president of the Restaurant Association of Maryland Marshall Weston. “And Will is a prime example of what we stand for. His dedication to Ledo Pizza and background of various experiences at all restaurant levels has given him the knowledge of what it takes to run a successful business. He has already created a positive impact on RAM and the state of Maryland, so we look forward to being under his leadership as he takes on this well-deserved role as COB.”

At Ledo Pizza, every pizza is rolled to order with fresh handmade dough topped with high-quality ingredients, like its famous thick pepperoni and fresh sausage. The menu also features freshly baked subs, lasagna, spaghetti, jumbo wings, soup, salad and cheesy garlic bread.
