Meet the team


Founder and Chief Flavor Officer

Dan is where it all began.


VP Sales & Marketing

Sam grew up with a passion for cooking and exploring new foods and cultures. An excellent pastrami sandwich blew his mind at age fifteen and ignited an interest in deli. He joined the RealDeli team after graduating from Tufts University in 2011 with a BA in Economics, and he is committed to helping RealDeli's customers succeed and enjoys building relationships with suppliers who share a passion for better tasting, healthier food. Contact Sam to discuss how RealDeli’s differentiated approach can fit into your growth strategy.
