Samson & Surry
Currently the Western Regional Manager at Samson & Surrey managing 9 states in the Young’s Market network.
Jacob has spent the last 19 years in the Wine & Spirits industry working both on the distributor and supplier side of the business.
He started his beverage career in 1999 at Young’s Market Company in Southern California and stayed there for 10 years. He left Young’s Market to take a position as the SVEDKA Market Manager in Southern California at Constellation Brands. After 3 years there he was then approached by some friends and colleagues to come run Southern California and Arizona for Western Spirits. It was there that he realized how much he enjoyed having a portfolio with a wider range of spirits and brands to sell and of course enjoy.
In June of 2016 he came on board very early with Samson & Surrey seeing a great opportunity within craft/artisanal spirits to grow professionally and personally with some fantastic brands. Having the range of brands with FEW Spirits, Bluecoat Gin, Brenne Whisky, Widow Jane and Mezcal Vago in the Portfolio has to potential to offer something to anyone.
The sense of family and comradery within Samson & Surrey is one of the major factors why he continues to enjoy this company and industry.
Born & raised in Southern California Jacob resides in Oceanside, California with his wife & 3 kids.
