The Experts

We are all creators

Starting with Jim and Jeff, Demeter & Co brings together the only team in the industry to blend the dynamic perspectives of both entrepreneurs + corporate brand stewards with that of investment banking + operations, and digital + field marketing across US and global markets.

Using our entrepreneurial instincts, industry knowledge, global experience, and passion to make impact, everyone is here to create Beverage Alcohol brands that embody the new cultural mood.

Our growing team is as bold and real as the brands they bring to life. Here, they’ve been colorfully reimagined by the hand of Ngadi Smart, a Sierra Leonean London-based artist.
