Hopefully y'all had a fantastic Memorial Day. This week, we bring you a short tour across Italy's Lombardi, Dolomiti, Lake Region and Valle d'Aosta. It's beautiful journey across northern Italia's wine landscape. Read on and join us, it starts tonight through Saturday.
Today, I'm thrilled to also introduce Javier Arévalo, the newest member to the team at Petit Philippe. Since 2017 Javier worked as Head Bread Baker both at the Great Harvest and more recently with Noble's Copain Bakery here in Charlotte. Before Javier was drawn to fine food and baking, he worked with BofA in management roles within both their Corp HR and IT Tech Ops functions - which was the natural path following his MBA studies at the University of South Carolina. His professional career started in Engineering as a key member of Walmart corporate's Supply Chain modeling team - his first professional stint after graduating from Georgia Tech in Industrial & Systems Engineering. Javier's family is originally from Venezula and moved to the US with his parents, who landed brilliant professional opportunities in Atlanta, which is where Javier grew up as a young boy. Javier's diverse background and impressive CV might have you wondering what he'll be doing with us at Petit Philippe. Suffice to say, a LOT, particularly when it comes to our Park Road project and plans to transition the store. So stay tuned, we have some great things in-store for you (and Javier). In the meantime, if you see Javier at Petit, please welcome him! He's no stranger to the store and he'll be excited to fill you in more. I'm very pleased to have him on board!
