Born in Central NJ, John began his journey into the wine world earlier than most. While still in high school, John began working at Carduner’s Fine Wines in East Windsor, NJ, as well as a stint at KKD Trucking & Storage (Lauber Imports) during the summers. John attended Marymount University in Arlington, VA, where he tended bar at a popular Washington D.C. nightspot, ultimately culminating in a degree in Sociology in 2002. It was also during his years at Marymount that John met his future wife, Kristin. After graduation, John began a career in the mortgage industry, although it became readily apparent to him that he was not passionate about the choice or the industry.
In 2003, opportunity came knocking and he began working at Vintage Imports. Starting on the ground floor with a small sales territory on our relatively new (at that time) New Jersey team, John was able to learn, build and grow with his accounts ascending to the top and anchoring our New Jersey efforts for many years. In 2014, John was promoted to NJ Key Account Manager, followed by a promotion to General Sales Manager, Vice-President of Sales and ultimately, the 2021 promotion to President. John’s genuine and personable demeanor, along with his focus on excellent customer service, have been a great asset to the company. Owing his own success to a strong work ethic and tireless and true customer-focused attention to detail, he has been successful leading with respect and teaching by example and is thankful for the countless friendships and relationships he has made in the wine industry.
John currently resides in Bucks County, PA with his wife Kristin, and 3 daughters, Madeline, Morgan, and Addison and dog, Dusty. In his personal time, John enjoys following sports, golfing and spending time with his beloved family.
