Robert Bowman

As an undergraduate at Cornell University, Robert learned about wine and visited many of the wineries and vineyards in the Finger Lakes region of New York.  


After graduating from Cornell with a B.A. in English, Robert found himself in North Carolina working for a regional grocery chain. Robert worked for this grocery chain for twelve years, the last seven of which he was the Category Manager for Beer and Wine.  Robert also earned his M.B.A. from Wake Forest University during this time.

Robert then joined Banks Channel on a “temporary” basis but after two years, he became a partner at the company. Today, Robert is the managing partner at Banks Channel and is thrilled to be part of such a vibrant, growing company and to be associated with so many terrific individuals at Banks Channel.  Robert is married and has three young children.
