Core Values Champion – September 2013


Here at Di Bruno Bros. we work and live by our Core Values.  Every month we pay tribute to a member of our Di Bruno family and celebrate someone who has shown off our values in an exemplary way.

Through nominations narrowed down by Senior Management, and hand-selected by our company President, we celebrate a team member each month.

Our Core Value Champion for the Month of September is Dan Black!

  • Position: Cheesemonger at Ardmore Farmers Market
  • Nominated by: Steve Mewha
  • Core Value that Dan best exemplifies: Company Stewardship

“He often offers help in the other departments if needed, and is genuinely a shining star here at Ardmore.” – Steve Mewha


Dan takes it upon himself to take full responsibility of the Cheese department at Ardmore, always checking the current sales numbers, comparing sales from last year and generally acting as though it were his own. He exemplifies standards, and always goes above and beyond for every customer!

Dan has come in several times on his day off or even come in early when there was a need in the Cheese department, doing whatever is necessary to attain sales goals and maintain a clean and sanitized work station.


How long have you been with Di Bruno Bros.? I’ve worked for Di Bruno Brothers for exactly six years on October 15th 

What is your favorite thing about working with Di Bruno Bros.? My favorite part of working here is to be apart of such a group of passionate foodies. Sharing knowledge, experiences and best of all educating our customers. 

When you’re not busy overseeing the Rittenhouse Cash Office what do you spend your time doing?  When I’m not at work my favorite thing to do is cook for my loved ones,  nothing quite like a good meal to really get conversation and the laughs started. 

Favorite cheese/cheese pairing/Di Bruno Bros snack you just can’t live without? If I had to pick a favorite pairing it would have to be Colston Bassett Stilton, Mole Salami and a nice dark Imperial scout.  

Congratulations, Dan!
