This month’s #teamspotlight is Jackie Archer of Blue Ridge Beverage Company, Inc. which is headquartered in the Roanoke Valley. Jackie is President and Chief Operating Officer and a Director of the company, where she has held multiple positions for her family’s business since 1997.

Jackie’s first career was in mergers and acquisitions and corporate finance in Chicago after graduating with an engineering degree from Princeton University and an MBA from The University of Chicago Booth School of Business.

Blue Ridge Beverage is a full-service wholesaler which distributes beer, cider, wine, and non-alcohol beverages throughout Southwest and Central Virginia from four operations located in Salem, Waynesboro, Lynchburg, and Abingdon.

Jackie also serves on several non-profit, foundation and corporate boards in her community, including the Virginia Tech Foundation, the Taubman Museum of Art, RGC Resources, Inc., and the Roanoke College Community Advisory Group.

What Jackie loves most about the beer business is the camaraderie of the people she has met and with whom she has worked, whether in her company, the VBWA, supplier and retail partners, and other affiliated stakeholders.
