ROBERT MUNSEY Co-owner, Shadowbrook
Under their stewardship since 1978, Bob Munsey and partner Ted Burke have brought the Crow's Nest and Shadowbrook restaurants to the forefront of the Central Coast hospitality industry.
Bob Munsey started the Crow's Nest in 1970, directing its growth from a small cafeé at the harbor to one of the largest and most popular restaurants on the Monterey Bay.
He joined the Crow's Nest staff as a bartender and assistant manager, then became general manager in 1971. Except for a three-year stint as owner of a San Francisco-based restaurant chain in the mid 1970's, he has remained at the Crow's Nest until his retirement in 2010.
A native of Portland, Oregon, he attended high school in Palo Alto, and graduated from the University of California at Berkeley. By the time he left college he had gained a thorough knowledge in food service through his experience as a public health specialist in the U.S. Air Force and manager of Berkeley's Red Lion restaurant. In addition to being co-owner of the Crow's Nest and Shadowbrook, Bob is a part owner of the San Jose Giants professional minor league baseball team.
Bob has been active in many Santa Cruz County community organizations. He helped develop the Cabrillo College Food Service Technology program, was president of the Santa Cruz Conference and Visitors Council, and is a founder and past president of the Santa Cruz Area Restaurant Association. He also served on the Board of Directors of the Santa Cruz Area Chamber of Commerce, and was named board member of the year in 1994, and was a founding director and past president of the Santa Cruz Harbor Business Association. The Aptos Chamber of Commerce named him "Man of the Year" in 2004.
He is a founder and has been a board member of the Santa Cruz Cancer Benefit Group for the past 20 years, has served as an honorary advisor of the Youth Leadership Corps at the University of California at Santa Cruz, has participated in the Big Brothers Program, and was co-chair of the Second Harvest Food Bank's Dining Out/Helping Out program. He has also been honored as a "Community Hero" by the United Way's Community Assessment Project for the Crow's Nest's efforts against under-age drinking. In 2006 International Rotary made him a Paul Harris Fellow for "tangible and significant assistance for furtherance of better understanding and friendly relations among peoples of the world."
Bob lives with his wife, Katherine, in the Pasatiempo area and spends much of his leisure and working time near the waterfront. He enjoys traveling and active sports, including body boarding, fly fishing, and skiing.
