Ces Nucci, 1975 graduate of Sheridan’s Marketing program is inducted into Sheridan Faculty of Business Hall of Fame for 2013. Nucci is CEO of NuStef Food Limited located in Mississsauga and is one of the largest producers of Pizzelle cookies, a thin Italian style wafer cookie.
Nucci graduated from Sheridan and immediately got a job as an assistant manager at Consumers Distributing and worked his way to the position of Store Manager. Nucci was then hired as Territory Sales Manager for Brooke Bond Foods selling Red Rose Tea and Black Diamond Cheese. Over the next eight years he was recruited and hired by three more food companies ultimately becoming National Sales Manager.
Nucci started NuStef Foods in 1985 and has become the domestic producer and international exporter of Pizzelles cookies, making and shipping more than two million of the traditional Italian cookies daily.
“The Sheridan Diploma was all I ever needed. Two professors who had the most positive impact on me were Dave Tinker, who defined the art of management as simply getting things done your way through other people and Professor Bruce Gillingham who said to walk into any business and simply adsorb what was going on there – say to yourself why are these people in business running it in this manner – and imagine what you can do and accomplish,” said Nucci.
