Michael Ressa

Michael Ressa, from Washington D.C., is the Marketing and Technology Associate at RessaBuilt. After receiving a BS degree in Psychology from University of Wisconsin-Madison, Michael went on to receive a Diploma in the Culinary Arts from the French Culinary Institute in NYC. Subsequent endeavors included chef positions at multiple Michelin starred restaurants throughout NYC. Michael finally attained one of his goals of being able to work for restaurateur Danny Myer when he was hired as the manager of Shake Shack's flagship location in Time Square. During this time he worked closely with the corporate marketing team along with the IT department to steadily grow sales and find innovative ways to promote the business in the very influential market. Departing the hospitality industry, Michael joins us at RessaBuilt to bring the marketing tactics and technology support skills he honed working at a publicly traded corporate restaurant. His out of the industry view point allows for him to find new and exciting ways for us to grow our business and give our clients the best experience possible. Off the clock, Michael still greatly enjoys cooking, especially for his family and friends.
