Founder & CEO
Jim Krigbaum

Having traveled to 73 countries, I have been able to enjoy local beverages and customs for some leading producers and cultures. As a NW native, I have seen the growth in the brewery and wine industries with the Willamette Valley going from the worlds’ leading producer of bluegrass to a world class wine producer. I love college sports, with the Beaver, Huskies, Trojans and Griz in my heart. When not on an airplane traveling to some unknown country I enjoy “nature” and time in Maui.


My Favorite beer - Austrian Weiss Bier and Ambers
My favorite wine - Argentinian Malbec
Director of Operations

I grew up on the Peninsula of Washington and went to school in Portland, Oregon. Most of my professional life has been working in the food and beverage industry, helping to open large and small restaurants in the Portland area as well as Walla Walla, Washington. I enjoy watching and playing sports in my free time and often find myself in the kitchen at home, cooking up a storm, with my lovely girlfriend. I started with Cornerstone Stainless just recently and am excited to help our new and existing customers succeed with their endeavors!
