About the Candidate
Meet Ted Wentz
As a business owner, distributor, car guy and second generation CEO of a family owned business, I understand the challenges we are all facing during this unprecedented time
Background in the Public and Private Sector
I hold an undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia, and an MBA from the University of North Carolina’s Kenan Flagler Business School with concentrations in marketing and entrepreneurship.
As a representative of the Department of Homeland Security, I worked closely with the Department of Transportation on a variety of automotive security and cross-border initiatives.
I also led a team preparing the TSA for pandemic influenza using a multi-media awareness campaign for 50,000+ employees and facilitated a Department of Homeland Security Working Group.
After business school, I followed my entrepreneurial passion and founded FireCraft, a retailer and distributor of outdoor cooking equipment.
As the CEO of Quadratec, one of the largest off-road parts and accessories retailers/distributors, I am responsible for the entire organization—including its strategic direction, earnings growth, and the strength of its brand.
