Sam was fortunate to study and practice innovation under some of the most influential and legendary innovation thinkers of this generation, Dick Foster (Yale) and Clay Christensen (Harvard Business School). After his tenure at Innosight, a top innovation consulting firm, Sam founded a Mediterranean food concept business in the Boston area. He is currently the founder and CEO of Phinix Grill. Sam now brings his expertise and enthusiasm to Bay State College.
