Our Team

We love wine. We love good design. Most importantly, we love helping you through the entire process of planning your home or restaurant wine cellar, from planning to the day your modern wine racks arrive onsite.

Charles Malek


Charles has been involved in and around the beverage industry his entire career. He graduated from the University of Colorado and began his career at the E. & J. Gallo Winery in its Management Development Program working in California and Japan. While based in Tokyo for six years, Charles developed a passion for ramen, riding the high-speed bullet trains and occasional gazes at Mt. Fuji.

Charles is active in the Colorado Chapter of the Entrepreneur’s Organization. He and his wife are the proud parents of twin boys and a daughter who keep them moving and grooving.

Doug McCain


With a background in real estate investing and construction, Doug McCain founded VintageView in 2001 out of his garage in Castle Rock, Colorado. The first display system, which held over 3,000 bottles, was installed in his personal wine cellar and word quickly spread about the innovative wine display he had created. Soon friends and family began requesting their own label-forward racks and Doug began producing and selling them out of his garage, laying the groundwork for VintageView to become an award-winning, household name in the wine industry. Doug is an avid fly fisherman and car enthusiast. He enjoys traveling all over the world with his wife Sally. One of their favorite places to visit is Africa, where he likes to go on safaris and photograph the wildlife.

A New England transplant, Jacob has called Colorado home since ’98 when he moved west to attend the University of Colorado-Boulder.

Before college, she was a competitive gymnast for 16 years. With this being said, she’s obviously passionate about sports and being active. Outside of work, you’ll find her enjoying the outdoors, whether that be hiking in Boulder or camping deep in the Rocky Mountains.

Megan Timlin

Marketing Coordinator

Megan comes to VintageView from the fashion industry, where she owned a women’s clothing boutique for two years. After failing forward, she continued to stay true to her original mission of working with local fashion designers and helping them grow their businesses through marketing and sales.

A Denver native, she enjoys spending time with her dog, Kingsley, shopping at local boutiques, and eating great food.

Office Dogs

Maggy McPickles

Chief Relaxation Officer

Maggy loves to roam the office and warehouse, making sure everyone is calm and happy. She loves tummy rubs and is considered one of the early adopters of label-forward racking. Always a cheerful bark when asked to put together an estimate. Her dad is Charles.

Panda Bear

Chief Barking Officer

Panda loves to share kisses but barks first and asks questions later — especially in front of the men in the office. She can usually be found curled up under a desk in the marketing department on Fridays. In her spare time she chases tennis balls and is known as the fastest dog in Jefferson Park. Her dad is Jacob.


Chief Office Dog (In memoriam)

Iris was Dave's loyal companion for more than 17 years. She could always be found napping next to her dad's desk in the sales department. At nearly 18, she was sent to Doggie Heaven in June 2016. Her beloved dad Dave Elliott could not have had a better companion throughout the years.

VintageView is better than a wine rack. It’s a contemporary wine storage and display system.
