Sales and Marketing veteran Jim Kopp joined the esteemed Turn Key Wine Brands team as Director of National OffPremise Accounts. Kopp works to target national accounts such as Target, Kroger and Whole Foods, providing them with custom and control label wines as well as the Turn Key Wine Brands own portfolio of wines.
Kopp joins the team with an impressive record of building brands in multiple channels with innovative sales and marketing efforts. A graduate of Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration, his experience includes successful stints with Jackson Family Wines, Acme Wine Marketing (his own sales and marketing company), and development and operation of several restaurant concepts in San Francisco CA. He comes to Turn Key Wine Brands from Truett-Hurst where, as Vice President, Sales and Marketing, he was responsible for the marketing and sales of 35 brands, delivering growth in excess of 30% per year, primarily in the national account channel.
Turn Key is a natural progression in Kopp’s food and wine career. “Turn Key Wine Brands is a perfect storm of exceptional vineyards and farming, state of the art winemaking, and a family commitment to top quality”, says Kopp.
“This, combined with their leadership position in the central coast and long-term thinking, makes them an incredibly exciting company to work for. I am thrilled to be a part of the team”
