Torry Katsiroubas Stamm
President & Co-Owner
Torry Katsiroubas Stamm is the President and 4th generation co‐owner of her family business, Katsiroubas Bros., in which she has held an executive role since 2005. Torry became President and co-owner alongside her brother Ted after their father Nick passed away from ALS in 2013 in honor of whom she founded the Nick Katsiroubas Foundation. The mission of the Nick Katsiroubas Foundation is to continue her father’s legacy of giving by supporting local children’s organizations as well as the ALS community.
Torry’s big-picture thinking and progressive decision-making helped double the revenue of Katsiroubas Bros., which now distributes food to a thriving customer base of over 1000 restaurants, hotels, and institutions offering over 3,000 different items.
Torry is passionate about empowering her employees to move up the corporate ladder and mentoring entrepreneurs, especially women and students, to start small businesses and bring products to market. Torry earned her BA in Communications from Boston College and her MBA from University of Massachusetts, Boston. When she’s not driving her business forward, Torry enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband and three children – and taking time for herself to practice yoga & meditation.
CEO & Co-Owner
Ted Katsiroubas is the CEO and 4th generation co‐owner of his family business, Katsiroubas Bros, of which he has held a principal role since 2006. Ted became CEO and co-owner alongside his sister Torry after their father Nick passed away from ALS in 2013, in honor of whom he helped found the Nick Katsiroubas Foundation. The mission of the Nick Katsiroubas Foundation is to continue his father’s legacy of giving by supporting local children’s organizations as well as the ALS community.
Ted partners with local vendors and companies to drive their businesses forward while making more environmentally sustainable business decisions. By talking directly with partners to find out how Katsiroubas can best support them, he pivots and maneuvers company product selection and offers creative solutions to meet their needs.
Ted has been featured in Edible Boston, FoodTank, and serves on the Board of the Newmarket Business Association and Fresh Truck. Like his father Nick, Ted enjoys giving back to the community and regularly volunteers alongside other Katsiroubas employees at the Boston Food Bank and Fresh Truck. When he’s not hard at work, Ted spends time with his wife and two children going to concerts and trying new restaurants.
We honor our employees that have served 15 years with Katsiroubas Bros. by hanging their vests in our office. Much like when the Celtics or Bruins hang retired numbers from the rafters of the TD Garden, we hang employee vests as a symbol of our gratitude for our working employees.
