    Event description

    Sheree has over 23 years’ experience in entrepreneurship – with a focus in food manufacturing, tourism and hospitality in a regional area. Sheree has walked the journey of starting something from nothing, risking it all, and successfully exiting at the other end.

    Sheree finished University with a Bachelor of Music and headed straight into the world of Entrepreneurship. 

    She came from a family of risk takers, hard workers, and a culture of ‘let’s give it a go’. Her parents had a fledgling goat dairy and a start-up tiny cheese factory in the Adelaide Hills and were working full time elsewhere to bring money in. They employed a cheese maker who subsequently resigned within 6 months. Sheree put her hand up for the job and said, “I’ll do it – I’ll give you a five-year commitment – I’ll teach myself how to make cheese, I’ll get the brand and systems established, I’ll generate profit”.

    Sheree, and later husband Saul who joined her, invested into the business and together the lead and grew what was a small niche business into one of Australia’s largest Brie and Camembert manufacturers. In late 2017 they attracted the attention of Japanese heavyweight diary company Megmilk Snow Brand, who purchased the business. Sheree continued in the role of Chief Executive elevating a start-up family run business to an Australian corporate subsidiary of an international dairy company. Sheree explains “It didn’t feel like my baby anymore, it felt like my grandchild”.

    After finishing their tenure at Udder Delights Australia, Sheree is now into her third start up with husband Saul and becoming craft brewers and running a large hospitality venue ‘Grunthal Brew’ in the Adelaide Hills. It employed over 40 staff and hit third year target goals within 6 months of opening.

    Sheree's latest start up is eBEER enhanced - a supercharged lager made with eBrewing technology. Together with husband Saul Sullivan they are evolving the global beer space.
