US: Beam Global exec joins Don Sebastiani & Sons
Don Sebastiani & Sons has appointed a new national sales manager and vice president for the Three Loose Screws division of its international wing.
The California-based company said yesterday (30 March) that Mike Cekay will assume the two positions, joining Don Sebastiani from Beam Global Spirits & Wine, where he was vice president of off-premise sales.
As SVP/national sales manager of Three Loose Screws, he will oversee a wine portfolio that includes Smoking Loon, Pepperwood Grove, Mia's Playground, The Crusher and B side.
"Mike and I have worked together on two previous occasions," said Don Sebastiani's president and COO, Michael Holden. "In both instances he delivered exceptional results and improved the return on investment in challenging business environments. His strong leadership skills and business development experience will add immediate value to our organisation."
