Professor Bode has held various management positions in sales and marketing in the consumer packaged goods and packaging industries. Prior to going into sales and marketing, Professor Bode worked as a C.P.A., first for Arthur Anderson & Co. and later for Kraft Foods, Inc. While with Kraft he was assigned to their European division based in Brussels Belgium where he worked for three years.
Professor Bode is married with two children who are currently enrolled in college. He is also pursuing a PhD which takes up quite a bit of his spare time. His topic has been approved and he is in the midst of the dissertation process. When not working or studying, he tries to teach himself songs on the guitar, run, and try out new recipes (he is especially keen on barbeque sauce recipes using unique ingredients).
