Stelios Stavrianos, Founder and CEO of The Core Beverage Group, is an avid spirit enthusiast and connoisseur in the hospitality industry since 2006. Born and raised in Stamford, CT, he brought his love for the industry to his own backyard with the company’s first award-winning spirit, Cylinder Vodka.
Along with his 12+ years in the hospitality industry, Stelios has over 9 years experience working in wealth management with the likes of JPMorgan and Merrill Lynch, and volunteers his time at various non-profit organizations in his community.
When he’s not making his vision a reality, he enjoys his free time by traveling to new places. “I travel the world to see different cultures and ways of life. It really opens your mind and gives perspective and meaning to our day to day.”
