Chief Executive Officer
Brian M. Friedopfer
Chief Operational Officer
For over 20 years, Brian has been a noteworthy leader in technology solutions, corporate IT, and organizational structure.
He describes himself as more of a coffee aficionado than vodka connoisseur.
That is probably for the best, making him the sharp, sober mind at the helm of our distillery.
Coming from several successful entrepreneurial ventures and prominent leadership roles at companies such as Thomson Reuters, The Bradford Group, and LaSalle Solutions, Brian brings the experience to take Sweet Grass Vodka from a local distillery in SC to a global spirits brand.
When he is not behind the steering wheel of Sweet Grass, Brian is an amateur race car driver. Hence, we have full confidence in his ability to make the right decisions in the heat of the moment.
