National Distributing Company (NDC), the US beverage alcohol distributor, has announced strategic management changes in two of its nine markets: South Carolina and Virginia.

Joe Gigliotti, executive vice president/general manger of the NDC - Springfield, Virginia, has been promoted to president/general manager for all of Virginia and will relocate to the NDC Sandston location (in southern Virginia). Furthermore, NDC will consolidate its northern and southern Virginia operations into one statewide operation headquartered in Sandston, effective May 1, 2004.

Charlie Bradford, current executive vice president/general manager of the Sandston location, has been promoted to president/general manager of NDC South Carolina.

Bradford will replace Alan Wolf, vice president/director of sales for NDC South Carolina, who is retiring. 

"Alan grew our South Carolina operation from its inception to become a competitive force within the state. We appreciate his dedication and professionalism for his more than 20 years of service. He will be missed, and we wish him all the best in his retirement," said Charlie Andrews, president and COO of NDC.  Wolf's retirement is effective March 15, 2004.
 
"We believe that these changes within each of these designated markets will ensure our growth and efficiency for the future," added Andrews.

The Bradford and Gigliotti appointments will be effective the week of March 1, 2004.
