Keith Kinsey

Former CEO | Portillo’s | Class of 1976

Keith Kinsey has nothing but jolly memories of the campus where he'd be deified 40 years after getting his diploma.

He is, after all, the guy who brought Portillo's to C-U.

The accounting major from the Class of 1976, who retired in 2018 as Portillo's CEO, will never forget ...

— “Professor (Ken) Perry’s CPA review class — he was motivational, extremely knowledgeable and a great teacher. 

— "Playing pickup basketball games at the IMPE building  Going to fall football games as a student. Having late night pizza delivered during your study group before an exam. 

— And last but far from least, "living in married student housing my senior year with my wife during our first year of marriage.”
