US: Heaven Hill beefs up US sales force

By | 6 March 2007

Heaven Hill Distilleries has announced an addition to its sales team in the US.

The company confirmed yesterday (5 March) that Dan Fornero has become area manager for Indiana. Fornero, who will manage on- and off-premise sales activities in the state, will report to Bruce Jacobson, regional manager for Heaven Hill.

Fornero has previously worked for E&J Gallo, Pernod Ricard, and Olinger Distributors - Indiana.

"Dan Fornero is a valuable new addition to the Heaven Hill Distilleries sales force," said Steve Feller, director of North American sales. "Dan's familiarity with Heaven Hill's mission and portfolio make him an ideal fit for our goals as a sales organisation. We look forward to the knowledge he can deliver in a growing market."

Last month, Heaven Hill was given the okay to expand its distillery in Kentucky. The company expects output from the facility to increase by around 40%.
