Jason McNamara is our Sales Representative for the Central Florida region. Born in Orlando, Jason has lived in the area for most of his life, aside from three years spent living in Switzerland. The experience of living abroad as a young adult opened Jason’s eyes to a beautiful kaleidoscope of global culture, and led him to a passion for hospitality and the restaurant industry. Working almost every service position in casual and fine dining venues, Jason gained 15 years of experience in restaurants. With a growing appreciation of wine, he became a Certified Sommelier by The Court of Masters. Soon after, Jason left restaurants behind to start a company as a licensed distributor. He spent the next six years in that role, cultivating his love and expanding his knowledge of the wine industry and related logistics. Jason now brings his love for wine, service and diversity together into successful solutions for modern beverage programs.
