Leon has a lifetime of experience in the beer business. He spent his summers as a young man stacking cases in the warehouse and rolling beer on the routes. After graduation from the University of Georgia, he began his career as a lawn care maintenance assistant. He has held many important positions since that day, including: delivery assistant, forklift driver, on-premise marketing representative, sales representative, computer systems manager, and sales manager. Today, Leon is proud to be the third generation to lead our company and grateful to have worked with so many fine individuals over the years.

Leon is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps. After graduating from Marine Recruit Training at Parris Island, South Carolina, he was trained as a Logistics and Embarkation Specialist. As a Corporal on active duty he earned the Marine Corps Commendation in support of Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm. His experience in logistical operations serves him well as a distributor.

Leon and his wife Rebecca reside in Athens with their two children Beau and Brooke. He enjoys spending time with his family, attending UGA sporting events, beer tastings with friends and training in the martial art of Tae Kwon Do.
