Drinks Americas has appointed two executives to its sales and marketing team.

The US-based spirits company, which counts Trump Super Premium Vodka among its portfolio, said late last week that Jack McKenzie and Tad Holtsinger will join Drinks Americas with immediate effect.

McKenzie becomes vice president of sales for the US, joining the company from Olifant USA, where he had been president. Drinks Americas completed the acquisition of Olifant Vodka earlier this month, for an undisclosed sum. McKenzie will also continue to oversee the sales direction and marketing of Olifant in the US. His responsibilities will include the management of all Drinks Americas brands in 16 US states, including Illinois and Texas.

Holtsinger, meanwhile, will join Drinks Americas as vice president of south-east US and control states. Holtsinger has 25 years of experience in managing wine and spirits brands, most recently for Blavod Extreme Spirits.
