Managing Through the Pandemic

A Raleigh native, David Meeker helped found Trophy Brewing and Carpenter Development in 2008. He has made every mistake in the world, lived to tell about it, and has invaluable business experience because of that. David is on the Board of Common Cause, North Carolinians for Redistricting Reform, Raleigh Chamber, Downtown Raleigh Alliance, Dix Park Conservancy, and Artspace. He is also actively involved with fundraising for Healing Transitions, a detox and recovery center on Dix Park. David lives in Downtown Raleigh with his wife and two boys, ages 1 and 3. Trophy Brewing was looking forward to a great 2020, just finishing their State of Beer expansion and weeks away from their Trophy Brewing on Morgan Street expansion opening, when the Coronavirus hit. Listen in to hear how David is dealing with it all and his plan to come back from it.
