Matthew Lannetta '03

Lannetta

My name is Matthew Lannetta and I graduated from the Thompson School in 2003.  I was enrolled in the Food Service Management program, which is now Culinary Arts and Nutrition (CAN) and had a concentration in Culinary Arts.

The most memorable part of the Thompson School was the faculty.  They were not only my teachers, but life mentors as well.  After a two year program I was ready to pursue and achieve my career goals.  I owe both my focus to detail and my attention to the importance of education to the many staff members that helped me grow from a child out of high school to a man that was starting a career.  I truly enjoyed the amount of diversity in the student body and also the respect that comes along with being associated with a university of UNH’s stature.

When I left Thompson School I attended the Culinary Institute of America and graduated in 2005.  I am currently living in Atlanta, Georgia with my wife and three kids.  I am the Executive Sous Chef for The Renaissance Atlanta Midtown Hotel and also support many large scale events.  I have been with Marriott for almost 8 years and am planning to transition into an Executive Chef position within the next 6 months.
