About

Dina Opici is President of the Opici Family Distributing, a family-owned wine and spirits wholesale distribution company based in Glen Rock, NJ.  Opici Family Distributing was formed in NJ in 1934 by Joseph and Esther Opici, Ms. Opici’s great-grandparents.  Hubert Opici, her grandfather, took over responsibility for the NJ wholesale business in 1944.  Through the years, the family has established a national import company and expanded its distribution business into New York, Connecticut, Florida, Washington DC, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia.  Ms. Opici’s start in the wholesale business began in 1998 after she completed law school at Benjamin Cardozo School of Law.  At a time when the industry was consumed by consolidation, Ms. Opici saw the opportunity for a family-owned business to succeed independently, and left the law profession to work with her family.  In an environment where corporate consolidation has eliminated many family-owned businesses, Ms. Opici feels that their long-standing business relationships and corporate integrity have allowed their business to survive and prosper.  Over the past 20 years, Ms. Opici has held various positions within the organization, including Sales Administration, Human Resource Director, and General Counsel.  Ms. Opici was asked to be the first Chairwoman of the WSWA Women’s Leadership Counsel and has led the Advisory Board for the past three years as they have established their mission as well as looked to bring women leaders in the industry together through events including the 1st Annual WLC Conference which took place in September 2017.
