New York, New York, United States
My name is Aris and I am a native of Greece. I came to the US as a grad student in Los Angeles (Pepperdine university) to receive my MBA. My expertise and passion has always been in branding and startup operations. I find fascinating the creation of brand identities, and blueprints for success, from scratch. I love being creative on one end, and standardizing complex processes on the other.
I am a branding and startup-operations expert. I started my successful wine importing company in New York in 2011.
I moved to New York in 2011 to start my own wine importing business, driven by my other passion, wine, and the desire to connect with my homeland of Greece. I am writing this in 2017, after having developed the largest national portfolio of organic, biodynamic and natural Greek wines in the US market. After having established Eklektikon as a reputable Greek wine vendor in our home market of New York, our network recently expanded to California, Oregon, Washington, Texas, and Illinois, with more states in our plans. Throughout all these years I have worn all kinds of hats and dealt with a myriad issues.
Feel free to contact me for advice on wine importing, branding, small business operations, marketing, supply chain management, and strategic distribution management.
