Aramark “ARAMARK is a leader in professional services, providing award-winning food services, facilities management, and uniform and career apparel to health care institutions, universities and school districts, stadiums and arenas, and businesses around the world” (Company Snapshot,2008). Before the company went by the name Aramark, they were called ARA. “In 1960 they took ARA public to infuse the enterprise with new capital and expand the business (History, 2008). Aramark needed to keep pace with demand and to realize conservative annual growth. In order to diversify and expand, Aramark had to have experienced leadership. This was hard to do since they were primarily growing by acquiring other companies. Aramark not only needed new businesses, but they needed their management teams as well. “Davidson and Fishman’s approach to entering new businesses was to research the best-managed local companies, acquire them, and convince key members of the acquired companies’ management teams to stay with ARA” (History, 2008).
