Stephan first came to Jackson Hole in 1999. As the owner of The Liquor Store and Jackson Hole Marketplace, he enjoys leading creative work teams and motivating them to succeed every day. In addition to being highly knowledgeable in the wine, liquor and beer industry, Stephan thrives on close ties with friendly local customers, excellent staff, diverse vendors, and dependable distributors.
Stephan is both host and creator of The Jackson Hole Connection podcast, during which he shares the stories of worldly, wildly interesting folks connected to Jackson Hole. In his newest endeavor, Stephan launched The Vault, a secure climate-controlled facility for local wine and spirit enthusiasts to store their collections.
Raised in Brookhaven, MS, Stephan had dreamed of moving West since attending college at University of Alabama. After being in Jackson Hole for a while, his next dream was to become a family man. Stephan married his beautiful wife, Laura, in 2013, and they are now raising two small boys, Louis and William. There’s no doubt Stephan has seen many changes in our area over the years, but one item always remains constant; his proud love of Wyoming. Serving our community is truly one of Stephan’s greatest pleasures.
