Zack Crafton

CEO and Founder, Elysium Services

Zack grew up on the East Coast, just outside Washington DC. After a few years as a national security consultant (including stints in the Pentagon and White House), he moved to Atlanta, GA, where he ran operations for McMaster-Carr. While in Atlanta, Zack earned his MBA and began his journey as an entrepreneur founding a variety of for-profit and non-profit companies. After six years of great barbecue and terrible weather, he left the south to join his brother in wine country – Napa, CA.

Zack consulted for a few high-profile wineries before joining a little-known wine startup, NakedWines. For three and a half years, Zack ran the operations for NakedWines serving as Global Operations Director and ultimately Vice President of Operations. He left in mid-2017 to apply his direct to consumer and luxury agriculture skillset to the cannabis industry.

He now serves as CEO and Founder of Elysium Services Inc along with two other former NakedWines executives. When not sitting in meetings, he sips a cold beer while on the advisory board of Bay Area beer startup Hopsy. When not drinking beer, Zack enjoys his private wine venture – creating and selling a California Tannat.
