I have been in the alcoholic beverage industry for over 30 years; in fact, I joined the business right after graduating from college at the age of 21. I have managed teams on both the supplier and distributor sides of the business, was the general manager at Holston Distributing (A-B and Multi-Brand) in Johnson City, TN for 10 years and most recently spent 5 years leading the Warsteiner USA business as the VP of Sales (team of 20). Needless to say, I love the business, have always been passionate about it and have many more years to give. I am a young 50+ year-old who enjoys running ½ marathons and working on my farm when I find the time on the weekends. I have traveled 60%-70% of the time for business in the past and enjoy that as well.
I have worked within the beer business in many locations across the country and feel that I have a clear vision about how to be effective in our industry, how to motivate stakeholders and can work with and evaluate wholesalers to drive their performance. I have not only risen to the challenge that each position in my career has presented, but have excelled at and enjoyed all aspects of my jobs. I feel very fortunate to have worked in this business, made a difference to those around me, and look forward to what new challenges lay ahead.
