With the background of running one of the country’s largest wine clubs and call centers, Merilee brings to Copper Peak lots of real world experience and a genuine understanding of her client’s needs. With her expertise in direct to consumer wine shipping, she has helped countless wineries streamline and expand their direct to consumer business. She has seen much over the years and believes life is 10% what happens and 90% how we react to it. Outside work, she enjoys gardening, spending time with family and friend and cheering on the Giants. She also keeps busy keeping up with a one year old Siberian Husky named Gonner.
Stacey started working for the Lane family when Copper Peak was just a twinkle in their eyes. Being able to “hand craft” a company from the ground up, in an industry she cares deeply about, has been one of the best experiences of her life. Stacey loves all the specialty requests that wineries challenge her with, from customized packaging to gift baskets. And she prides herself in her team, which she truly thinks of as family. In her off hours she can be found drinking her husband’s amazing homebrew, cooking, gardening, playing with her 6 year old daughter Ella, dog Leo-da-Flea-o, and can be heard cheering at the top of her lungs LET’S GO OAKLAND!
Dave is not only Copper Peak’s go-to for business development and marketing, but an in-house expert on transportation, fulfillment, and pricing strategy. He loves following up his action-packed days at home with his wife Charlene and his son Levi. Dave is also a Cycling/Spin instructor. Dave says the last thing he wants customers and team members doing is spinning their wheels with inefficient strategies. Dave also volunteers his time with the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center at the annual “Cycle for Survival” event in the SF Bay Area, raising awareness and funds for rare cancer research.
Meghan joined the Copper Peak team in 2014 after searching for a new fulfillment house for the winery ecommerce and wine clubs she was running. Her search brought her to much more than a new vendor! She has been in the wine and craft beverage business in some way or another since before she could legally drink, save a small stint in TV News Production, and has specialized in direct to consumer sales and customer service. During off hours, you might find her touring the local wineries, powering through a hot yoga class, cooking or visiting family (she has a lot of family). If her amazing boyfriend, Craig, and her are not enjoying a play at the theater company he runs, they are exploring the regional parks with their three dogs- Charlie, Max and Little Man.
George came to Copper Peak to assist part time with business development and quickly was recruited to stay as a full time Client Service Account Manager. With 16 years experience in the DTC wine logistics and packaging industry, he brings a lot of expertise in being the invisible link between clients and their customer’s experience. And the folks in the office appreciate his calm and quick witted demeanor. Off hours, you’ll find him playing slow pitch softball or brushing up on Star Wars trivia. His wife, Jen works with Levi’s Corporate office and his 12 year old son is fluent in Spanish.
Scott has been with Copper Peak Logistics since the beginning—but he has specialized in putting things in boxes for much longer. His ability to fix just about everything has come in handy over the years, especially when he set up all the internet and communications for the new office. He says the best day at Copper Peak was the day he went from contact consultant to an actual employee. Outside of work, his amazing girlfriend keeps him sane and his involvement in the local ACLU chapter keeps him interested.
Charena is lovingly known as “Mission Control” at Copper Peak. She has manned the phones and kept everyone in line since 2008. She is the resident gift card guru because of her stunning handwriting. Outside work, her kids keep her busy. With her 12 year old son Malik playing football and her 15 year old daughter as a high school cheerleader, she is the ultimate football Mom. But please, don’t tell her you’re not a Oregon Ducks fan. At one year old, her littlest daughter, Genesis, is already showing signs of an aspiring dancer– which Charena will gladly show you videos to prove.
Katiria, known as Kay, has been working with Copper Peak since 2007. She is an integral part of the workings of Copper Peak Logistics, specializing in carrier claims and return processes. Off the clock, she knows how to enjoy life and keeps the adventures coming as a proud mother of two beautiful daughters, Destany and Marriah; and we can’t leave out Mr. Fancy Pants (the family cat).
Milton has been with Copper Peak Logistics since it began, providing on-the-ground oversight in California and coordinating with the Materialogic team back in Missouri. Milton resides in St. Louis but certainly enjoys his frequent trips to Napa for business. He says he doesn’t mind rooting for Cardinals baseball, but his heart really lies with the St. Louis Blues hockey team. Milton also has roots in the South, as is evidenced by his food and drink preferences, and is currently leading expansion plans in other areas of the country.
Silvino has been a member of the Copper Peak team since the beginning. He can be found “directing traffic,” receiving and overseeing the warehouse operations. He truly enjoys his work, which is apparent in how often you can hear him singing and dancing to the radio. At home, he loves playing soccer and cooking outdoors with his beautiful wife and three kids.
After five years with the Copper Peak team, Miguel is an integral part of daily operations. Spending much of his time in the CPL delivery van, he can be seen all over Napa and Sonoma Valley transporting clients’ precious goods. Not only is he a jack of all trades in the warehouse, but a jack of all trades on the farm where he lives. From raising livestock to most any general construction, he’s a great guy to have around. He also loves all sports and is particularly partial to the San Francisco Giants. Go Giants!!
Bubbles is a key component to the daily success of Copper Peak Logistics. His life under water keeps everyone hopeful that it may someday rain again outside.
