I am the newest manager here at Global Colonial. I come from a diverse background including wholesale warehouse experience in management, as well as running and owning a restaurant. I am a lifelong resident of Orchard Park where I reside with my wife and two children. Come on in and say "hi" and let me help you with your wine and spirit needs.
My love of wine had me apply for a job with The Global Group in 2004. It is a fun industry to work in, and I have met many interesting people. Everyone from salespeople, winemakers and winery owners have enriched my experience here. I have also learned so much about wine and spirits in the time I have been employed at The Global Group. Please stop by our McKinley store and meet our staff and let us put our knowledge to work for you.
I originally started in the wine and liquor business back in 1995. I helped manage a store in Colorado and fell in love with wine there! For the next ten years, my life revolved around wine, people and food. I also hosted many wine tastings at restaurants and charity events throughout the area. When I moved back to Buffalo in 2006 I was lucky enough to find employment at the Global Group. I remember walking into the McKinley store for the first time and feeling that this was the place for me. The passion the employees have and the willingness to do what was necessary to make the customers happy mirrored my own thoughts on customer service. The most exciting thing about my job is meeting and talking to people and sharing my wine and liquor knowledge with them. My goal is to bring my passion and enthusiasm to the customers and hopefully make their shopping experience enjoyable.
I am one of the newest members of the Global Group and have 25 years of retail, wholesale, and marketing experience in the wine and spirit industry. Service is number one with the Global Group, so come on in and let us help you with your wine and spirit purchases. We have a large selection of everyday and hard to get wines and spirits as well as an experienced staff to help you. You will be glad you made the trip!
