Austin, Texas (PRWEB) October 15, 2012
Adam Torpy, CEO of Goelet Wine Estates (GWE), the global family-owned wine company whose holdings include Napa Valley’s iconic Clos Du Val Winery, the Languedoc’s Domaine de Nizas and Australia’s Taltarni Vineyards, confirmed today the appointment of The Mark Wine Group, led by President and Founder Mark Gmur, to spearhead the company’s national accounts business.
The Mark Wine Group is a family-owned, fine wine company representing the highest quality family-owned and independent wineries and importers to hotel and restaurant companies throughout the United States. The GWE portfolio of ultra-premium wine brands is a big win for the Austin-based company and is expected to drive substantial incremental revenue for both partners in the coming years.
“Mark Gmur brings to us twenty years of domestic and international experience in the wine and hospitality industries,” commented Adam Torpy. “His reputation within the industry and his relationships with key accounts are outstanding. We couldn’t be more pleased with this appointment.”
The much anticipated appointment plays a critical within a series of organizational enhancements GWE has undergone this year designed to drive efficiency within and the effectiveness of the GWE sales organization while increasing brand visibility.
“We recognize the contribution national accounts makes not only to our bottom line, but more importantly, as a marketing vehicle for our brands,” continued Adam Torpy. “Putting the right resources behind them is the right thing to do.”
