The Industry Experts, an alcohol consulting company, was founded by Leslie Pond, a 25 year veteran of the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. During his tenure, Leslie worked his way up the ranks from Investigator to Supervising Agent in Charge. Leslie’s last assignment was commanding the Central Coast of California where he was responsible for licensing thousands of businesses from 2007 to his retirement in 2019. Leslie was also tasked with policing the ABC licenses in his area for compliance. Leslie was often asked by his staff if he would ever consult after leaving ABC. His response was, “If I did, you would have the most accurate and complete application sitting in front of you.” The Industry Experts gives you the unparalleled expertise of an ABC Supervising Agent in Charge along with over 25 years of licensing, compliance, community/government relations, and law enforcement experience to back that up. If you are thinking of starting a business that sells alcohol, then we are the only alcohol consulting company that you need.
