As Executive Beverage Company continues to grow its national footprint and globally-focused wine portfolio, the company is very pleased to announce the hiring of Erica Roberts as Director of Trade Development. 

Effective immediately, Erica has taken over the role previously held by Tracey Fotopoulos, who was promoted to Vice President of Sales for Executive Beverage in March of 2023.
