After graduating from Temple University, Fred’s passion for the food and beverage industry drove him to the restaurant industry to continue to expand his knowledge. After stops in some of the most reputable restaurants in Philadelphia, he looked to move into sales, working with a distributor representing some of the world’s largest wine and spirits brands. Wanting to really immerse himself in the industry and learn from the ground up, Fred took a role with a local distillery as Sales and Marketing manager. Getting to build a grain to glass whiskey brand was a rewarding, but challenging experience. Looking to move back into a distributor role and reigniting his thirst for wine knowledge, Fred joined the Vintage Imports team in February of 2023. Fred is excited to represent such a unique portfolio of products from around the world. Fred enjoys spending his free time with wife and two children, cooking, traveling and competing in as many cycling events as possible.
