Industry veteran recruited to bolster leadership team of market innovator
Beverage Metrics, Inc., a leading provider of beverage management solutions, today announced that it has named Bob Fenley as President. With more than 25 years of experience in executive leadership and business development roles, Fenley is ideally suited to directly contribute to Beverage Metrics’ overall growth in the on-premise segment of the hospitality industry.
“We believe that end-to-end liquor and inventory management systems will become standard across the hospitality industry, and we plan to be the market leader in this space,” said Peter Linke, CEO of Beverage Metrics. “In order to achieve that, we need to ensure that we continue to drive value for our customers and that our company can scale to meet the rapidly growing needs of the marketplace. With his expansive background, knowledge and relationships in the industry, Bob is uniquely positioned to help lead our team in that direction.”
Fenley has been a highly successful executive and sales leader in the hospitality industry for more than 25 years. He joins Beverage Metrics from Vianet Americas where he served as vice president of sales. Prior to Vianet Americas, Fenley worked for Coors Brewing Company, where he served as National Channel Director – On-Premise and was responsible for directing on-premise sales and business development initiatives. He has held several additional positions in the hospitality industry, including management positions with Diageo–Guinness USA and Miller Brewing Company.
“I believe Beverage Metrics’ combination of innovative technology and strong industry relationships puts the company in an ideal position to drive leadership within the market,” said Fenley. “I’m excited to be joining the strong management team at Beverage Metrics and look forward to servicing the existing client base while developing new opportunities in the marketplace.”
Based in Dallas, Texas, and a wholly owned subsidiary of IDENTEC GROUP AG, Beverage Metrics is the only complete end-to-end beverage management solution.

With its patented and proprietary system, Beverage Metrics employs wireless technology and state-of-the-art algorithms to deliver real-time, end-to-end beverage inventory data to the cloud from which customers can pull reports using only their web browser.
