Our leadership stems from the two founding families: The Chaplins, one of the original founding families of Southern Wine & Spirits; and The Glazers, who founded Glazer's, Inc. When the two companies combined, a powerful mix of company-grown leaders, talent from the beverage alcohol industry, and experts from leading companies outside the industry were brought together. Officially, we’re known as Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits. But ask any of our customers, suppliers, or team members and they’ll tell you we’re not just a company. We’re a tight-knit group of friends and family.
