Jan Rinkes, Warehouse Manager
“The hardest working person I know.” That is how a long-time associate describes Aventura’s Warehouse Manager, Jan Rinkes. Coming to Arizona while in the Air Force, Jan decided to make Arizona her home. She used that hard-work-ethic to quickly excel in the food and beverage industry. Beginning pouring beer, she shortly became the Assistant Food & Beverage Manager. She decided she really enjoyed the fast pace of the sports and entertainment industry. After nearly five years, she was presented the opportunity of Maintenance Director for the largest outdoor concert facility in the state. That led to over fifteen years in operations and maintenance at two different concert facilities. Are you tired yet? Jan wasn’t! In 2004 she joined ARAMARK at Jobing.com Arena. Beginning as a Stand Lead she was quickly promoted to Warehouse Manager at Surprise Recreational Campus for spring training (home of the Kansas City Royals and Texas Rangers). This opportunity opened the door to a promotion to General Manager of a fast food franchise at Arizona Mills Mall. Eight years of hard work as General Manager and as support to many other ARAMARK properties…and Aventura offered Jan a place on our team to continue her passion for purchasing and warehouse management at Phoenix Convention Center. In her “spare time” Jan finds time to enjoy frequent trips to Rocky Point and anything sports related or outdoors. Yes even in the Arizona heat (it’s a dry heat).
