JEFF BRICKER

PRESIDENT, FOUNDER AND CO-OWNER

BRICKER GROUP, LLC & BRICKER PUBLISHING

 

Jeff is the President and Publisher of Bricker Group, LLC. He served in the Iowa Army National Guard from 1982 to 1988, and then began his career as a Graphic Designer in 1988, establishing Bricker Publishing with over 35 years of Graphic Design, Marketing, Advertising and Publishing experience. Prior to founding Bricker Group, LLC in 2007, Jeff was the Art Director and Sr. Graphic Designer at several other major publishing companies. From 1990 to 2000 Jeff was also the co-founder of Media Associates, a Graphic Design and Commercial Photography studio located in Des Moines, Iowa.

Jeff grew up on a farm near Boone, Iowa where he obtained a vast knowledge of agriculture. His love for the land, along with his deep appreciation for the craft beverage, wine industry and publishing arena, made it a very natural progression to form his own publishing company and introduce The Grapevine Magazine in 2007.  A few short years later in 2014 he launched Beverage Master:  Craft Spirits and Brew Magazine.  Jeff has plans currently underway to introduce several more magazines in the very near future.

Jeff and his fiancé (and Co-Owner), Cyndi Bowlby, live with their two Laborador kids, Turner and Levi.
