Jordan Winery Appoints Brad Butcher National Sales Director

HEALDSBURG, Calif. (May 4, 2016) – Jordan Vineyard & Winery has promoted Brad Butcher to the position of National Sales Director, effective May 1, 2016. Most recently Central Regional Sales Director for Jordan, he brings more than 20 years of experience in on-premise hospitality, wine distribution and sales experience to Jordan’s top sales position. Brad succeeds Emmanuel Padilla.

As National Sales Director, Brad continues to share the Jordan family’s passion for European inspired winemaking and hospitality with consumers and customers across the country. He will oversee Jordan’s Regional Sales Directors and all export business, as well as the sales department staff at the winery. He will also continue to manage distributors and accounts in Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa.

“We’ve been fortunate to work with Brad for many years,” said John Jordan, CEO of Jordan Vineyard & Winery. “We look forward to bringing a new level of professionalism to our sales organization under his leadership.”

Brad joined Jordan in 2011 as Central Regional Sales Director, managing Jordan’s distributors and sales and market activities for up to 19 states. Over the years, his territory grew to include Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, New Mexico, Colorado, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky, as well as Western Canada. Brad has been highly successful at expanding distribution, creating and managing vital wholesaler and account relationships, and integrating impactful sales and marketing tools while growing Jordan’s business. In 2015, he took on supervisory responsibilities for the Western Region.

Although Brad has worked at Jordan Winery for the last five years, he has represented Jordan wines for more than 15 years through various roles in his wine career. Prior to Jordan, Brad worked for Pacific Wine Company, a distributor owned by the Terlato family in Chicago. After PWC was acquired by Southern Wine & Spirits, he continued to serve in sales positions, working with fine restaurants, hotels and resorts, and eventually turning his attention to managing the luxury portfolio of Moet & Hennessy.
