India Hynes

President and CEO of Vinotemp International

20 Women to Watch, continued ...Published: March 01, 2011

Hometown: Newport Beach

Age:
A young 44

Family:
 Husband, Anthony, children Patrick (13) and Claire (10)

First job:
Media buying firm (too rowdy)

Biggest break:
It would be meeting my husband at Starbucks – he keeps me grounded and successful.

Secret to your success:
A willingness to listen. A good sense of money and ability to mix creativity and business.

Advice to other women in business:
Be able to delegate. Start at home. If your home is organized, you can concentrate on work and be organized there, too.

All-time favorite bottle of wine:
Château Lafite Rothschild – my father stored it in our cellar, and we would drink it for special occasions.

Hynes took over the Vinotemp, which manufacturers custom wine cellars, after her father’s death in 2005 and followed in his productive footsteps. Last year, Hynes acquired Apex Wine Cellars and Saunas (valued at $20 million) and launched Epicureanist, which designs and patents wine accessories. Vinotemp recently moved its headquarters to Irvine to accommodate its recent growth.
   
“The combination of three businesses makes us the largest provider in our 
industry,” Hynes says. “Although the economy put a damper on things, we saved for the rainy day and grew our product line to expand our market.”
