I started with the Global Group in December 2006 and have been in the wine and spirit industry since 1978 as wholesaler and retailer. Throughout my career I have had the privilege to visit many wineries and wine regions in United States, Canada and Europe
The most gratifying part of the job has been helping customers match wines with foods they are preparing for their meals. The large inventory at the Global Group Stores offers a wide variety of wines and regions from which to select. I am employed at the McKinley store and if you ever need advice on any wines or spirits please feel free to ask for me.
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 started working in the wine and spirit world in 1989 where I worked in shipping and receiving for various liquor distributers. In 2002 I began working part-time for the Global Group at their McKinley location which eventually turned into a full time management position at their Colonial location in Orchard Park, though I have returned to McKinley. I am really enjoying the retail end of the business, especially the interaction with customers and fellow employees. I have learned a lot in the last couple of years here at Global and it continues with the help from our knowledgeable staff.
