He still claims to be the fastest busboy east of the Mississippi and holds some obscure record in Atlanta for most plates removed from a table in an hour. Punk rock is music to Vince’s ears and over the years he has become an excellent Guitar Hero Player. He enjoys singing showtunes on weekends and doing his best Whitney Houston impressions at the Karaoke bar, all while being the best dad he can be to his son Fox.
Accounting Manager, ARRIVE Wilmington
Zak is a lifetime numbers lover, and problem solver. His move to #beancounter came after many years in food service, including having a hand in the opening of Wilmington’s first Panera Bread. After his first child came on the scene, motivation ensued and he trekked back to school, where he obtained an accounting degree and started his new path. Now with eight years of accounting experience in tow, Zak spends his weekdays crunching numbers and his weekends trying to keep up with three amazing kids and one incredible wife (while throwing in some woodworking, tinkering, and golf as time allows). To him, age is just a number.
