Alan Gnann

Alan Gnann founded CorkTec, Inc in Stafford Springs, Connecticut in 2004 where it continues to operate. Alan received a B.S. degree in chemical engineering in 1971. Upon graduation, Alan began his career with the Union Carbide Corporation prior to being called to active duty in the US Army serving as a Military Police officer overseas for four years. Following his Army service, Alan earned an MBA degree in 1978 and worked for 2 additional large corporations in a variety of management roles prior to becoming an entrepreneur in 1997 which immediately led him to numerous business trips to Portugal in search of the finest grades of cork available. Since 1997, Alan's businesses have become one of the largest importers of Portuguese cork. This, along with a lifelong interest in wine, led to the formation of CorkTec over 10 years ago. Alan's business holdings include EdgeWater International, Inc., REC Components, and Richard Wheatley Partners, Ltd. Alan is assisted by his wife Linda who actively handles administrative matters for each business. Linda and Alan live in Tolland, CT with their 3 Brittany Spaniels. Alan is an avid fly fisherman, golfer, and dog trainer.
