Joined Ventures in March 2019.
Fred brings over 30 years of wholesale, retail, merchandising, and business ownership experience to the Ventures team as Retail Store Manager for the Ventures Marketplace in Pike Place Market. Fred plays a key role in leading the store staff, fostering vendor relations, and increasing public awareness of our store. He brings a passion for helping people, a desire to guide local artists, and a commitment to making a difference in the world.
