7:30 AM | Reception & Continental Breakfast
8:00 - 10:00 PM | Program


Founded in Tacoma, Bargreen Ellingson is one of the leading food service supply and restaurant design companies in the United States. It now serves nine states (and one province) and has over 600 employees.

Byron Ellingson led the company for 10 years before hiring his sons Paul and Rick. Paul and Rick, in turn, have brought in their sons, David and Eric, who currently serve as the president and executive vice president, respectively. Each has continued the company's nine On Board values that "guide our decision making from the boardroom to the warehouse"—smart hiring, respect, teamwork, good judgment, communication, learning, pursuing change, ownership and "hoopla" (the company's term for employee recognition).

Please join Rick, Paul, David, and Eric Ellingson for what should be a fascinating discussion regarding preparing the next generation and maintaining and enhancing the family legacy.
