David Kennedy grew up in MA and graduated from Lehigh University with a BA in International Business. He spent the next 27 years in finance at a few different investment banks in NYC. That life ran its course and in 2020, he decided to try and turn his passion for craft beer into his next career. He took all 4 classes offered in The Business of Craft Beer program and wrote a business plan for his Capstone Project.
He is now the Director of Finance at Upslope Brewing in Boulder, CO and is thrilled to continue to work with the Business of Craft Beer team and help the next wave of students follow their own passion for craft beer! He currently lives in Denver, CO with his wife, 2 kids and tries to get into the mountains whenever possible.
