Beginning as an assistant manager at the track kitchen 25 years ago, Yossi Barron from Israel is now Oaklawn’s Director of Purchasing.
Keeping it in the family, Yossi is married to Kim Barron of Florida, Oaklawn’s Director of Marketing and employee of 33 years. She ended up at Oaklawn by working seasonally for a catering company.
The two met at Oaklawn. Yossi recalls her walking up to him one day and saying, “So when are you going to ask me out?”.
Yossi was thrilled. He had always thought of her as “out of my league”, but as he says, he “married into the winners circle”.
Thank you Yossi and Kim, for your time at Oaklawn and for keeping the system running on an even playing field.
