Jeff Kiesel


Restaurant Technologies Inc.




There are new owners at Restaurant Technologies Inc., but CEO Jeff Kiesel remains at the helm after guiding the cooking-oil system maker through solid growth under the previous owner, EQT Infrastructure, a European private equity group. RTI’s buyer, Aurora Capital of Los Angeles, cited Kiesel’s record from 2011 to 2015 as a big reason for the April purchase. He was credited with increasing RTI’s overall customer base by more than 30 percent and growing EBITDA by more than 65 percent during the four-year period.
