In part 1, we have Derek Correia, President of ReserveBar and Lindsay Held, CEO and Co-Founder of ReserveBar, an eCommerce leader in rare, luxury, and ultra-premium spirits, specializing in customization, personalization, and innovative gifting.
Derek was a struggling entrepreneur when he met Lindsay. Lindsay brought him on to ReserveBar because of his great ideas and perspective. Derek is not just fueled by problem-solving but passion as well. It kept him going in his previous business failed.
When things were at their worst, Lindsay fell into a deep depression but relying on his brother, Co-Founder, and support network helped him. According to Lindsay, people don’t fail; businesses fail, that’s why it should not be taken personally.
ReserveBar was started when Diageo, the largest producer in the spirit industry, looked for a marketing partner to create an eCommerce website around 2011. The brand successfully pitched to Diageo and got its first partnership signed. And the rest is history.
