Friday, July 10th, 2020, 11:45am-1:00pm

Mark Canlis
Canlis Restaurant

Mark grew up in a restaurant family and officially joined Canlis in 2003. A graduate of Cornell University, he served as a Captain in the Air Force and worked for Danny Meyer in New York City before returning home to take over the restaurant. He and his brother Brian spearheaded a generational transfer and brand modernization that has garnered the family business national acclaim as one of the finest and most creative restaurants in America. The 70 years young restaurant is a designated Relais & Chateau property and enjoys the distinction of twenty-four consecutive Wine Spectator Grand awards and three recent James Beard Awards. Mark is routinely called upon to speak about culture, leadership, and brand ingenuity. He resides on Queen Anne in Seattle with his wife Anne Marie and their three children.

About KIROS Tacoma

Welcome to KIROS Tacoma. We encourage and support Christian business people in their marketplace ministries. We welcome you and your participation in the transformation of our workplaces through faith. We look forward to connecting with you at the next breakfast meeting.

KIROS Tacoma was founded in 2008, by John Pfaff (and his wife, Cosette, along with a dozen other faithful team members). The inspiration to start KIROS in Tacoma came after john attended a Seattle KIROS breakfast in early 2008 and realized that God was calling him to help make this available to Christian business people in Tacoma and the South Sound region.

If you have any questions or would like to learn more about the Tacoma Chapter, please contact the Tacoma Chapter head at info@kiros.org.
