Evan Inada

Hayward, Calif.

Charcuterie/partnerships director at Columbus Craft Meats

Evan Inada known to many as The Salami Guy, and that’s just fine with him. He’s more than earned the title, working each day to share his love of Columbus® products with customers and consumers alike. Evan has had a nearly lifelong relationship with Columbus Craft Meats, a century-old company that specializes in artisan deli meats, including the “salame” that put it on the map.

The culinary outreach is a component of Evan’s role that he finds especially fulfilling. He was once a part-time sushi chef, which allowed him to explore his creative side and fund his passion for expensive food. Handling duties such as the charcuterie program for Columbus is even better, partly because Evan envisioned it and brought it to life.

The people, the food and the communities that inspire us.
