Francois Sabate, vice president of marketing for Winebusiness.com, heralded the appointment as one in a series of strategic moves by the company to secure partners that are acknowledged leaders in their fields. "The PPC team immediately understood our vision for a multidimensional wine B2B portal that combines content and community with a marketplace for sales and procurement," said Sabate. "PPC has a long-standing reputation throughout the industry for dynamic communication and a comprehensive knowledge of the world wine markets," he said.
"We are very pleased to have earned the appointment," said Paige Poulos, president of PPC WineCom.
