National Accounts Manager, US/South East
Much like many people I fell into this business and fell in love with the wine industry, its fast-paced nature and wide range array of people are what draws me in daily. Not to mention the wonderful wines this industry produces, but that is a bonus to the people I get to interact with on a constant basis.
In 2008 I joined the sales team at RNDC completing the Gallo sales training manual and achieved the 2010 salesman of the year award. Shortly after I proposed to my wife Janelle, I then joined the management team in 2012 relocating to the El Paso market as District Manager on/off premise spirits for all RNDC divisions. After much work, effort, and time, I then relocated back to San Antonio as an Area Sales Manager managing all retail wine off premise management teams. As a new dad to be, I took on all the tasks and challenges that were headed my way whole heartedly in San Antonio. In addition, Janelle and I welcomed 3 wonderful children into the world over those years.
I moved to various state/multi state leadership roles calling on Walmart, Portfolio Management for The Wine Group, and Division Manager of Chains for The Regal Fine Wine Division for TX/OK/LA.
In August of 2023 I joined the Folio Fine Wine team as the National Accounts Manager for the US/South East region and I’m proud to be part of this team that values “real people, real wines” and has a true focus on its customers as well as the company’s overall success.
I really enjoy spending time outdoors with my family camping, boating, fishing, and playing sports. I will remain based in the Dallas market with my wife Janelle, sons Andrew Jr, Aiden and daughter Eliza.
