Maggie Kuhlman

Financial Manager

Maggie hails from Toronto, Canada.  During high school, Maggie competed on the Canadian Track and Field Team as a high jumper.  After high school, she accepted an athletic scholarship to Purdue University, where she studied business.  While a scholarship offer brought Maggie to the US, meeting her husband was the reason she stayed.  Together they have three boys and one lovely granddaughter. In her free time, Maggie trains for half marathons, visits wineries and arranges trips to see various family members who live across the globe.

Maggie’s interest in wine first began during visits back home to Canada, where she was able to enjoy different bottles from her brother’s growing collection.  Once Maggie and her husband had children, she became a full-time elementary school teacher, but her desire to learn more about wine led her to a second job working at a small winery, doing tastings and teaching wine classes.  When the opportunity presented itself, Maggie went to work for a local wine distributor as both a business manager and a sales representative.  She discovered that the organizational skills she learned as a teacher, coupled with her knowledge of both business and wine, proved quite useful in her new career.  Maggie oversaw the details of receiving, invoicing, and planning wine deliveries while also developing strong sales relationships with twenty key accounts.  Interested in learning about the wine import business as well as furthering her career in the wine industry, Maggie accepted the position of Finance Manager with Banks Channel in early 2017.
