The 2017 Wine & Spirits Market Manager and Beer Market Manager Awards
Each year, Total Beverage Solution is proud to honor two of their most accomplished Market Managers with awards of special recognition for their dedication and hard work—the 2017 Wine & Spirits Market Manager and Beer Market Manager Awards. Awards are given for excellence in Beer as well as Wine & Spirits, and candidates are chosen based on their performance in three different components—Gross profit versus their market plan, distribution growth and key brand performance. This year the race was remarkably close, with the illustrious title going to two exemplary candidates who finished in the top three in all of the award components, Joe Randazzo for beer and Megan Tufano for wine & spirits.
