Krystle Lockman


At Axe & Arrow, Krystle oversees finance, marketing and compliance -- breweries are a highly regulated industry! -- and helps to manage the brewhouse. In her quest to launch their campus-adjacent brewery, Krystle quickly navigated understanding of determining and managing startup costs, developing a brand, acquiring and setting up equipment, creating financial forecasts, meeting legal requirements, and exploring recipe conception through to production, brewing, and bottling. Still, in the early stages of the business, Axe & Arrow is now focused on excellence in products, customer experience, and serving as a valued community member on Rowan Boulevard. Krystle spent over a decade as an accountant: mergers and acquisitions, bank reporting and covenant management, board reporting, leading the implementation of a new ERP system, always focused on improving operations for cost savings through accounting strategies and techniques. She attended Gloucester County College where she earned her AS in Business Administration and Management. She then attended Rowan University to complete her BS in Accounting and her MBA with a concentration in Accounting.
