Lynmar Brock Jr.
Retired President & CEO
Mr. Brock served Brock for 45 years and was admired and respected in the contract foodservice industry. Lynmar succeeded his father and the company’s founder, Lynmar Brock Sr. in 1962 and began to pivot the business away from mobile catering towards business cafeterias as American workers moved from factories to offices. In 2001, the company expanded its reach to serving independent school clients. Upon Lynmar’s retirement in 2007, Andrew J. Brock assumed the role of president and chief executive officer.
Mr. Brock was born in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, and resided in Havertown, Pennsylvania, during his early years. He received a B.A. degree from Dartmouth College and an MBA from Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business. Before joining Brock full-time, Lynmar served in the U.S. Navy, leaving active duty as a full Lieutenant, and he continued to serve in the naval reserves. In addition to his devotion to Brock, Lynmar was passionate about his involvement with the service club Rotary International. He held several leadership positions, including chairing the Rotary International Committee for Afghan Refugees that helped relocate 50,000 displaced refugees. Upon his retirement, Lynmar began writing historical novels, and he published four currently available on Amazon: Must Thee Fight, In This Hospitable Land, Genevieve, and The Inn of Ten.
Mr. Brock died December 17, 2020, and is survived by his wife, Claudie, sons Christopher Lynmar Brock (Erin), Andrew Juliard Brock (Alexandra), and three grandchildren.
