Sam Grigg

Originally from Melbourne, the self-proclaimed home of the flat white, Sam's coffee career began in the high mountains of central Vietnam. Sam has already lived and worked in some of the most beautiful countries in the coffee-producing world, such as India and Colombia, where he coordinated the exports of a large coffee trader. For List + Beisler, he works out of New York and is using his strategic acumen and bags of enthusiasm to press ahead with the expansion of the North American market. Sam is aware of the often less than ideal conditions of the farmers in the coffee producing countries, yet he is and remains an idealist. Therefore, he is assuming responsibility as a board member of a leading NGO and providing small and medium-sized coffee farms in origin countries with sustainable funding. But his tendencies for world improvement don't stop there: he never tires in his attempts to educate us in the difference between rugby and Aussie Rules football. Now that's true passion!

Jim Patton

Jim started out in farm and ranch work, where he happened to come across an advertisement for an assistant coffee buyer for the Coca Cola Company. Out of curiosity, Jim sent his resume which resulted in him leaving graduate studies in Animal Nutrition at Texas A&M to take a position with Coca Cola's Maryland Club Coffee Company.

Jim was with Maryland for over 12 years and rose through the ranks to become manager for green coffee buying, importing and blending; before the company was sold-off. From there Jim moved to an Indian multinational trading company, where he oversaw the Houston office and the sourcing of tea for their US packing plants, as well managed the importation and sales of India and other origin coffees to the North American market.

Since 2006 Jim has worked for a well-known specialty coffee importer, which at the time of his commencement was merely a start-up. Jim handled the full spectrum of merchant responsibilities in a 2-person operation and helped grow the company into one of the premier specialty coffee importers in the USA. Jim has joined List + Beisler with the goal of accomplishing the same.

Gunnar Servais

When meeting Gunnar expect the unexpected: he grew up on an island in the North Sea, but ended up on the other side of the world right after high school, spending a year in Australia including desert and exotic animals. Once he returned from down under, he chose big city life in Hamburg to start training in business forwarding and logistics. Gunnar has sent quite a few commodities throughout the world along his career path. Just before joining List + Beisler he even sent himself to Tanzania for a few months.

Looking for a long-established company paired with Hanseatic values, he arrived in the beautiful warehouse district Speicherstadt at List + Beisler, handling our transit and export business. With his northern German accent, a passion for unique socks and an impressive coffee consumption, Gunnar has become firmly established in our logistics team.
