Derek Smith

Brewery Consultant

Meet Derek

As a self-identified consultant, accountant, and avid craft beer drinker, Derek joined the team in mid-2020 and had an immediate and dramatic positive impact on our clients. One of his previous employers described him as, “Literally the fastest worker I have ever seen,” and now we can vouch for that too (although only one of many talents)!

Derek’s speed, precision, and consulting skill set is matched only by his understanding and command of systems and technology. And both our team and our clients love him for it!

Oh, and also his ability to regularly run hundreds of miles through the Rockies like a mountain goat… so there’s that too 🙂

You can connect with Derek on LinkedIn here.

"Derek is an endurance runner, and he brings that commitment and focus with him to his work. Derek helped on board us, and made the process as seamless as I think could ever be possible with his attention to detail and his effortless, quick responses. He's a delight to work with. Cheers!"
