SWSA is bolstering its Minnesotan unit

Southern Wine & Spirits of America (SWSA) has appointed a sales head for its Minnesota unit.

John Acott will oversee Southern Wine & Spirits of Minnesota's “entire commercial organisation" across the state, a company spokesperson said yesterday (21 August). It is unclear if Acott is replacing anyone as VP, general sales manager of SWS-Minnesota.

Meanwhile, Dan Daul will replace Jeff Quale as VP, general sales manager in the Minnesota unit underneath Acott. Both appointments are effective from 3 September, the distribution company said.

Acott joined SWS-Minnesota in 2002 and previously worked for E&J Gallo, Brown-Forman and Romano Brothers.

Last month, SWSA appointed a new operations VP for its Illinois, Kentucky and Minnesota divisions. Dale Huhnke was previously operations VP for Illinois.
