Brian Bonar originates from Scotland, and his career originally was in business. He currently is an executive of Trucept Incorporated. Prior to working for Trucept, he was one of the executives at Dalrada Corporation.

Both of these companies have helped numerous corporations to succeed. In addition, Bonar is very well connected in the business world, and he has ties with numerous other companies. Ultimately, he decided to take his career in a different direction, the restaurant business.

Brian Bonar currently owns Bellamy’s in San Diego. His well known restaurant is in the Escondido section of the city. Bellamy’s has received very high ratings, and critics have spoken highly of the food served.

Brian Bonar has also selected excellent chefs, including Patrick Ponstay. He has had an extremely successful career as a chef, prior to working for Bellamy’s. He used to be a chef at Loews. Before that, he was a successful chef at Rancho Bernardo Inn, and he helped to train another very successful chef while he was there.

He hired also another quality chef for his restaurant, Mike Reidy. According to Bloomberg, Brian Bonar hired him after he saw his culinary talent at one of his favorite restaurants, El Biz. He also hired Trevor DaCosta, who is a skilled front of the house man.

About The Food At Bellamy’s:

Bellamy’s is among the best places to dine in San Diego! It is a French bistro restaurant, but there are menu items that you do not typically see at a bistro. One of their dishes is mille feuille. Their mille feuille has eel and pork fat in it. In addition to the meat, it also comes with delicious granny smith apples.

They serve more common dishes, such as corn soup, and it comes with top notch ingredients. If you are more of a salad fan, they have a great choice of salads, including a delicious beet salad. There are other great dishes at Bellamy’s, such as their mushroom ravoli and duck dishes. In addition, they serve great desserts. One of the best is the saffron panna-cotta.

Bellamy’s is not the only San Diego area restaurant that Brian Bonar has. He has also owns Bandy Canyon Ranch. This restaurant also is an event venue. The food there will also of excellent quality, as Patrick Ponstay is the marquee chef.

However, the kitchen hasn’t been designed yet, which means that Patrick Ponstay is exclusively at Bellamy’s. In the future, it is likely Bandy Canyon Ranch will be where he spends most of his time. Therefore, now is a better time than ever to go to Bellamy’s!

Dick DeVos: The Leader We Hope for and Dream to Be

There is no testing the waters when it comes to Dick DeVos’s endeavors; he dives right in. Growing up with daily involvement in his father’s business Amway, Dick was provided an opportunity that he has since shaped into a legacy. He began working in Amway in 1974, leaving it to develop The Windquest Group, an investment management company in his own neighborhood of Grand Rapids, Michigan that supports technology, manufacturing, and clean energy. Although he returned to become the president of Amway, he retired from that position in 2002 to dedicate his time to Windquest and a myriad of political and philanthropic pursuits.


Some of those pursuits include Dick and his wife Betsy’s co-chairing of the Education Freedom Fund, which offers private scholarships to low-income families in Michigan; Dick acting as board member of RDV Corporation, Willow Creek Association, Spectrum Health System, Thunderbird School of Global Management, and more; and creating the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation for local and global growth. Amazingly, these are only a handful of DeVos’s many achievements, done in tandem to being an active participant with his wife in Windquest’s investment in numerous technology, manufacturing, clean-tech, and non-profit organizations. Many of these organizations directly support the local community of Grand Rapids, as can be seen on Windquest’s portfolio. Likewise, the DeVos Foundation is devoted to bringing leadership, transformation, and support to the West Michigan area. One example of this devotion is ArtPrize, founded by Dick and Betsy’s son Rick; it is a stunning exhibition of globally-submitted artwork where the public votes on the winner for a $200,000 prize. More info can be found on other recipients of the foundation on their website.


In personally viewing Dick’s social media pages I was struck by his warmth and visionary scope. The genuine care he has for the suffering, the success, and the wellbeing of not only his neighbors but the world is truly inspirational. Opportunity and wealth have not alienated Dick from the rest of the world, but rather augmented his compassion and support of their advancement. It is here, in Dick DeVos, that we find the type of leader we’ve always hoped for and the hero we quietly dream to be.

As a result, he started a triathlon and funding program for these SEALs over at Crowdrise.

Wirth has also been featured in an episode of CBS’s Undercover Boss show, an opportunity he had to take the producers behind the scenes of Squaw Valley.
