Roland is a native Floridian born and raised in Jacksonville. He is a graduate of Randolph Macon College in Ashland Virginia. He has enjoyed a highly successful career, holding increasingly responsible executive positions in several national companies both family owned and publicly traded. Most recently he served as executive in charge of sales for two of the nation’s largest construction materials firms.

Roland’s appreciation of wine and the art of collecting were born out of a passion cultivated over the past 20 years. His need for a cellar capable of housing, displaying and maintaining his sizable collection totaling nearly 5000 bottles, led to the discovery of Revel Cellars. Through the planning, design and fabrication process, a mutual feeling of respect and admiration was fostered between him and Revel founder, Jim Cash-eventually leading to his affiliation with the Revel team. Roland’s successful history in sales combined with a deep knowledge and passion for the wine industry will distinctly contribute to the future success of the company.
