Global Spirits USA Restructures Sales Team to Support Recent Growth
New York, NY, December 14, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Global Spirits USA, a privately held, international manufacturer and marketer of wines and spirits, has realigned its sales structure and staff under the direction of CEO Maxim Dubossarsky.
“Due to an aggressive sales and marketing strategy for our Khortytsa Vodka and LEAF Organic Vodkas, our organization recently surpassed 100,000 case sales in under 24 months,” says Dubossarsky. “In an effort to position the organization for rapid and continued growth in 2017, we have realigned our sales team to maximize our market opportunity.”
As the newly appointed National Sales Director North, Jose Guerrero will expand his responsibilities and oversee sales for the North, Central, and Eastern regions. As National Sales Director South, Jim Amstutz is now responsible for the Southern and Western regions.
Both Guerrero and Amstutz will lead and expand the company’s internal sales team and distributor networks, developing strategic partnerships and creating and executing national sales strategies that will continue to drive and expand Global Spirit brands in the U.S. market. Both will be increasing their state-by-state sales teams to build on the company’s successful market entry.
Guerrero boasts an exceptional career in the beverage alcohol industry. Prior to joining Global Spirits, he was national sales manager for Anson Imports LLC/7 Mile Spirits LLC overseeing 13 key markets and a team of 12. He also rose through the ranks of Van Gogh Imports/Luctor International LLC from NY State manager to multi-state sales manager, and spent almost a decade in sales with William Grant & Sons in Metro & upstate NY.
Amstutz is an Entrepreneurial-driven sales leader who has expanded Global Spirits brands throughout the Southern USA over the past 18 months. He has over 15 years experience in the beverage business growing iconic brands such as Red Bull, Heineken, and Leblon Cachaça before creating his own energy drink brand. He joined Global Spirits in 2015, and was initially responsible for the sales and marketing execution with regional and national accounts in the southern region. His efforts led to a 130 percent increase in case volume in one year.
