For DSquared to continue to grow in the right direction, we needed a dedicated eye on our financial operations and strategy. After an exhaustive search, we finally found someone who was not only qualified for the job, but also shared our company values. As an experienced advocate for locally owned-small businesses, Ray Lacorte brings his 25 years of leadership in the food & beverage industry to DSquared, as well as his passion for community creation. “Collaboration and relationship-building are keys to successful partnerships and customer service,” says Ray. Although stationed at The Works, you can find the punk-music enthusiast and cat-lover checking up on all of DSquared’s facilities. A collector of clothing from the 40s and 50s since his college days, you can spot Ray by his vintage-inspired wardrobe.
