The new members join BevZero’s current roster of dedicated winemakers, brewers, distillers and scientists, and by creating and filling new positions like EMEA Director of Business Development and Manager of Global Beverage Innovation, BevZero is maintaining its leadership position in the global market.

The following team of experts were recently brought into BevZero:

  • Irem Eren: EMEA Director Sales & Business Development  
  • Megan Brodie:  US Product Assistant & Winemaker
  • Cameron Caldwell: US Production Enologist
  • Lauren Barrett:  Manager Global Beverage Innovation

The following existing team members have been promoted into new roles:

  • Sergio Torres: Maintenance Engineer

BevZero CEO Debbie Novograd says, “With our continued focus on innovation, we are excited for this new chapter for BevZero.
