Meet June’s Botrista MVP: Julia Ott, Director of Account Management

Julia leads a high-performing team of account managers in the central region and is also the Account Director for one of our largest enterprise partners. “I oversee all aspects of this key account, including strategic relationships, growth and retention, as well as work to develop and implement SOPs and best practices to optimize performance and effectiveness of our account management team.”

“I heard about Botrista through our incredible VP of Customer Success, Nolan Schachter. I immediately went to see the BotristaPro drink machine in action and discovered first-hand not only how innovative and reliable it was but also how revolutionary the ingredients and recipes of fresh blends are as well. There’s nothing like it and I had no doubt the company would make a positive impact within the food and beverage industry.” Julia says it was an exciting opportunity to take on a role that was the first of its kind and be able to assist in implementing various best practices for the account management team.

Julia is no stranger to the world of food and beverage. “My entire career has been in hospitality, which started by working 14 years in hotel group sales. I then made the switch to my first technology company, Chowbotics, a robotics company specializing in a salad dispensing robot.” After that, Julia worked for POS company, HungerRush. “I managed all net new business within the enterprise restaurant sector focused on the company’s new AI voice ordering technology.”


“My favorite part of my role here at Botrista is the people I have the opportunity to work with. The quality of people here is unmatched; everyone embodies the ‘one team, one dream’ mentality and brings their best every day. I also love helping our partners thrive by offering them an innovative beverage automation solution. It’s exciting to be part of a company that is truly changing the world!”

Mentorship to Julia means recognizing you can grow, no matter how much experience you have or where your background comes from. “I learn from my team every day; the ideas and thoughts they bring to me spark ideas and help me grow in my role. In turn, I strive to share my knowledge with them, helping them grow and develop within their roles.”

Lesson in leadership – if you’re uncomfortable, you’re growing. “I constantly want to be uncomfortable because I know that I’m continuing to grow, both personally and professionally. It drives me, helping me realize that I’m making progress every day. The goal is to have a continuous impact and consistent knowledge to share with my team.”

“When I’m not spending time with our partners, I am spending quality time with my loving husband, 2 kids and Golden Retriever, Penny. You’ll also find me working towards my next personal best in the gym or reading and listening to audiobooks.”

If Julia could possess any superpower, it would be the ability to teleport. “I would choose teleportation for many reasons. It would allow me to be present instantly whenever I’m needed. I could go back in time and have conversations with loved ones and influential thought leaders. It would give me the opportunity to see all of the world and gain incredible insight, understanding and knowledge.”

Julia’s favorite Botrista drink is the pineapple coconut smoothie. “I’m a big fan of coconut flavor, whether it’s food or beverage, but this Botrista smoothie made by our beverage dispenser is the best. I always have to grab one of these fresh blends from the menu when I see it at a partner location!”
