Perlick has announced that Tracy Pearson has been named the new President and CEO of luxury bar, refrigeration, and dispensing brand Perlick. Pearson began with Perlick as CFO in 2021 and for the past 9 months has been operating as acting CEO, while also maintaining her role as CFO.

Pearson’s new role is a milestone moment as Perlick’s first ever female President and CEO, creating an impactful footprint for women in the manufacturing industry as a whole.
With more than 20 years in executive leadership in manufacturing and private equity companies, Pearson’s expertise in building financial infrastructures, revenue growth strategies, and facilitating strategic alignment to create high-performing organizations will continue to be the key to Perlick’s ongoing and future success.
Pearson’s alignment with the brand go beyond the walls of Perlick as she is an avid winemaker and gardener on her hobby farm, proudly utilizing the Perlick equipment in the storage and dispensing of her craft.
