Xander Oxman is Co-Founder and CEO of Winc, a direct-distribution wine company. Winc stemmed from the company’s founders experiencing first hand a shortcoming in the way wine is sold at retail. As an avid wine drinker (though by no means an oenophile), Xander felt like brick-and-mortar was either an overwhelming purchasing experience at supermarkets and big box stores or inconvenient and pretentious at wine boutiques. Furthermore as a card-carrying member of the Amazon generation, Xander was completely underwhelmed by the options to buy and learn about wine online.
Xander graduated from the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado. He currently lives in Southern California with his wife, daughter, and newborn son.
