Mark Zappala, Founder & CEO

With varying stints as a banker, real estate developer and investor, Mark has finally found a way to combine his life-long interests in food, wine, travel and writing in a venture that allows for the tax deductibility of same. Born out of personal frustration with out-of-date winelists, missing inventory and irrelevant recomendations, Mark envisioned WinePicks as a beautifully simple tool with a singular purpose: to help you find “Your wine. Everywhere.”

Pritam is the current President and CEO of PCN Network, a member of the Edison Director Network and, along with Mark Zappala, a co-founder of WinePicks. An average golfer with a penchant for over-analyzing everything, Pritam is never lacking for an opinion and, fortunately for his investors, most of the time he’s right!
