Power Lunch at Spindrift
Tuesday, March 10, 2020
12:30 pm - 1:30 pm (EDT)
Newton, MA

Join Bill Creelman (C'96) for a Power Lunch at Spindrift! Bill is the founder and CEO of Spindrift. He graduated from college in 1996 with a business plan — to sell smoked fish from Nantucket. But over time, that idea morphed unpredictably into a brand that sold cocktail seasonings and supplies. After selling that company to liquor giant Diageo, Bill wanted to stay in the beverage industry. As a way of kicking his Diet Coke habit, he started making sparkling water with a fresh squeeze of lemon or grapefruit. That deceptively simple idea grew into Spindrift, with an annual revenue topping $100 million.
