After returning in 1987 from a year in Grand Cayman teaching scuba, Paul stumbled into the wine business – and still to this day, is not exactly sure how it happened.
Paul started his career as a merchandiser for one of the biggest distributors in Pennsylvania – having always been keen on food and wine, a career dealing with at least one of those seemed to be a great fit. Due to his incredible work ethic and seemingly limitless hustle and energy, he worked his way to the top, achieving the #1 rank in his division. In 1990, Paul heard about a fledgling upstart called Vintage Imports, and joined the quality-minded company as salesperson number three (today, there are 32). Six months later Vintage expanded its territory into the state of Delaware, which Paul excitedly began nurturing as his new project.
With over 35 years of experience, it is a mild understatement to say that Paul has great partnerships with many on- and off-premise accounts, and truly understands the ins and outs of the Delaware market. In 2013, Paul took on the role of Delaware State Manager, and now divides his time seeing new and old customers throughout the state, as well as mentoring the growing Delaware team. Paul’s primary focus continues to be customer satisfaction; it is that dedication that has enabled both him and Vintage as a company to enjoy years of continued growth and success in Delaware.
Paul resides between Southeast Pennsylvania and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware with his wife and two children.
