My name is Gabriel Resendez and I've been with Darden for more than two years as a part of the gift card sales team. Prior to joining Darden, I worked for a financial services company. My wife and I relocated to Orlando from Chicago back in 2005. I was born and raised in Northwest Ohio and am a graduate of The Ohio State University. I am excited to share my story as a part of Hispanic Heritage Month.

I'm proud to work for a company that embraces diversity, culture and different backgrounds, which is why I got involved in Darden's Hispanic Employee Resource Group (ERG). Every year as a part of Hispanic Heritage Month, Darden's Hispanic ERG chooses a country to focus on for the course of the month. This year's focus is on Mexico, which allows me to share more about my culture and to get more involved. During my two years at Darden, I've made many new friends and learned a lot about different cultures through my participation in the Hispanic ERG and by attending various events from other ERGs, so I'm excited to give back and teach my colleagues a little about my heritage.
