Dating from 1993, Wilson Beverages is based in Coral Springs near Miami. We have broad experience supporting the global beverage industry – primarily in the Americas. Miami is ideally situated for this.
The company is headed by Robert Wilson, who was in financial management for the beverage businesses of Cadbury Schweppes after graduating from Oxford and qualifying as an accountant in the UK. In 1993, Bob left Cadbury as VP of Finance, Cadbury Aguas Minerales in Mexico, to start his own operation which continues to this day. His particular strengths are financial analysis, planning and building pathways out of complex and challenging situations. He has great experience helping beverage companies fill gaps in their portfolios with original and exciting new products.
Richard Wilson brings unrivalled knowledge of the companies in the Latin American beverage world, and knows many of the key managers personally. After graduating from the University of Miami in 2000, Richard became an equity trader before being appointed operations manager of a phone card manufacturer. He then joined what was to become Wilson Beverages to assist with a consulting contract which covered the metrics of beverage manufacturing in the Caribbean and Central America. This broad experience was the foundation of his ability to find a road to market for US and European brands seeking a presence in Latin America.
