Lee BagleyPresident / Founder
Lee has spent his entire career in the food service industry. His knowledge, passion, and expertise is built upon a solid and diverse range of experience and careers within the business.
While attending the University of Utah, he worked for his father’s restaurant equipment dealership, installing food service equipment and designing kitchens. Lee then joined a local food equipment manufacturers’ rep agency as a Sales Agent where he worked for five years before becoming a Sales Manager for SYSCO Food Service in the non-foods division.
In 1996, Lee founded Intermountain Food Equipment. Lee says, “food service is in my blood–nothing brings me greater professional satisfaction than helping the many facets of this industry achieve their goals for success.” Another aspect of the business Lee enjoys is mentoring culinary-minded high school students in the Pro Start program.
Lee relaxes by cooking, gardening, and spending time with his wife, daughter, and his two sports-crazed sons. As a family they enjoy skiing and hiking in the beautiful canyons of the Wasatch mountains.
Caroline BagleyCo-Owner / Marketing Manager
Caroline’s career began at The Utah Food Bank, where she met Lee while he was serving on the volunteer Board of Directors. They married in 1997, a few months after Lee opened Intermountain Food Equipment.
Caroline then became a Project Coordinator for Nu Skin Enterprises, a billion dollar Nutritional and Personal Care Company. She worked in International Product Development and Marketing for five years, and was promoted to Marketing Manager for Southeast Asia. She enjoyed traveling throughout Asia and working with the Asian people.
With the arrival of their first son, Caroline put her skills in marketing and communications into growing Intermountain Food Equipment. She loves working in a business that is culinary driven. (She even spent a few years being a part-time baker at the Deer Valley Ski Resort.) She has enjoyed meeting numerous consultants, chefs, restaurant owners, and other noted foodservice professionals. Caroline enjoys volunteering, reading, baking and traveling.

She excels at organization and communication between manufacturers, consultants, dealers and end users. Amanda facilitates inside sales, customer service, quotes, and keeping the logistics of the business running smoothly. She has a great “can do” attitude, and as a result has made many friends in the industry.
