Winery Exchange has bolstered its beer team to meet the growth of that category, especially with the rise of craft beer. The sales arm of the company has been restructured to include a team dedicated to beer.
“In recent years, Winery Exchange has expanded beyond a successful private label business with the development of a national brands division,” said Abbott Wolfe, senior vice president of sales, Winery Exchange. “We now have a strong national sales team in place to meet the needs of existing and potential customers. We are seeing an increased demand for innovative wine and beer products that deliver on value and high quality.”
Marc Kibbey has been appointed to vice president of sales/beer. Kibbey most recently served as vice president sales, food and beverage category, at Owens-Illinois Inc. Prior to that, he served as division vice president for Pabst Brewing Co. and also worked for Coors Brewing Co. Kibbey currently resides in Hinsdale, Ill.
