Welcome to Epstein … Cody Mandel!

Assistant Project Manager within our Strategic Services consulting group

Cody is an Assistant Project Manager within our Strategic Services consulting group and he comes to us from Hormel Foods, where he worked in various facilities (Rochelle, IL; Willmar and Montevideo, MN; and Aurora, IL), lastly serving as an Industrial Engineering Manager. 

Cody received his BS in Industrial Engineering from West Virginia University (Go Mountaineers!) and he has many varied outside interests. For instance, the Spike TV approved side of him enjoys riding his motorcycle, working on cars, and playing hockey (though not a native of Chicago, he is a huge Blackhawks fan).  Cody – good call on the Hawks, if you had said you we’re a fan of the Wings or, god forbid, Kings, we would have had to kill you!

Cody also has a Lifetime Channel side which is evident in the fact that he likes to paint surrealistic works of art, although he is not as far-out as Salvador Dali. If you are curious, acrylic and water colors are his favorite mediums.  (Just wondering Cody, have you gone Orange County Choppers on your bike and painted something so bizarre on the Gas Tank that the Sons of Anarchy would actually approve?)

Lastly, Cody and wife, Elizabeth, live in Oswego but hope to someday experience the wondrous urban existence by moving to Chicago. (Good call – you need to be closer to the Madhouse on Madison!)

Again, welcome to the family, Cody!
