Biography

Born in the Five Towns area of Long Island, on April 27, 1962, Rande Gerber graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in marketing. He worked as a model for a number of years, before shifting his focus to business.

Rande Gerber's career is a fascinating blend of entrepreneurship, hospitality, and branding, making him a prominent figure in the business world. He is widely recognized for his contributions to nightlife and entertainment through his innovative approach to bars, restaurants, and lounges.

Gerber's journey began in the 1990s when he founded The Gerber Group, a company that would go on to revolutionize the bar and nightlife scene. His first venture, the Whiskey, set the tone for his unique approach to hospitality. The Whiskey, a bar located in the Paramount Hotel in New York City, broke the mold of traditional bars and lounges with its sophisticated yet accessible ambiance. This model was a hit, leading to the expansion of The Gerber Group, which opened several more successful bars and lounges across the United States.

What set Gerber's establishments apart was their combination of stylish, contemporary design with a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere. These venues became popular among celebrities and the fashionable set, yet remained accessible to a broader audience. His success in the nightlife industry earned him a reputation as an innovator and a trendsetter.

In addition to his ventures in hospitality, Gerber is also known for his collaboration with George Clooney and Michael Meldman in founding Casamigos Tequila. Launched in 2013, Casamigos started as a private collection of tequilas meant for their personal enjoyment. However, the brand quickly gained popularity and became known for its smooth, rich flavor. In 2017, in a testament to its success, Casamigos was sold to Diageo for $1 billion, marking a significant milestone in Gerber's entrepreneurial career.
