-THE MAIL ROOM TEAM-

Sean McGinnis

CFO / CONTROLLER

Sean started at the Mail Room in 2005, one year prior to Molly’s purchase and had the pleasure of training her.  He has worked his way through all aspects of the business from customer service to wine packing and warehouse management to eventually fulfilling the role of Chief Financial Officer and Controller.  Sean was born and raised in Newberg, enjoys pop culture, video games and comic books.  Ultimately, he is a cat person, but we don’t hold that against him.

Christie Shertzer

COO / HR / RETAIL MANAGER

Reformed ballerina and east coaster, Christie found her way into Willamette Valley wine 15 years ago.  During that time, she built, rebranded and developed hospitality and operations programs for new and established tasting rooms – The Tasting Room in Carlton/EIEIO & Company, Alexana Winery, Panther Creek Cellars and Raptor Ridge Winery.  She has now taken her experience and knowledge into a different aspect of the industry as Chief Operating Officer of the Newberg Mail Room.  Play time includes cooking and the love of her life, Lana the black lab who has the best ears ever.

David Sorensen

WAREHOUSE MANAGER

David, also an Oregonian, has been with us for four years.  He started on the front counter and moved over to the wine side when Stacy arrived.  The last couple of years he has been instrumental in the processing and flow of wine shipments and has now stepped into the role of Warehouse Manager.  After serving in the US Army, David went to culinary school and was a chef for a hospital for many years.  During his time away from Newberg Mail Room he spends time talking with his 22-year-old son in Florida and having his friends cook for him.

Alex Koeppen

Diana Coplan

WINE PACKING SPECIALIST

Originating from central California, Diana has called Oregon home for 19 years.  Her main focus at the Mail Room is packing wine, but she excels at and really enjoys the challenge of packing interesting auction items.  However, Diana’s specialty at the Mail Room is keeping all of us laughing and full with her delicious tamales.  In her free time, she loves refinishing furniture and spending time with her kids and her funny grand dog Yui.

Dennis Turner

WINE PACKING SPECIALIST

Originally from California, Dennis moved here over 40 years ago so it’s safe to say he is an Oregonian.  He is one of our Wine Packing Specialists, making sure wine arrives happy and safe to the recipients.  Dennis also is an entrepreneur, having owned a business for over 20 years.  In his spare time, he is an animal lover and enjoys riding horses and doting on his nine grandchildren.
