Royal Wine Corporation (RWC), the world's largest kosher wine producer and importer announced that Douglas Simon has joined the wine and spirits team in the newly created position of vice president – national sales manager. Simon will be responsible for wine and spirits sales across the entire United States.

He has over twenty years' experience on both the distribution side and producer/wholesale side of the wine industry having started his career at the Gallo Wine Company and most recently being the vice president – national sales manager of Jackson Family Imports & Global Business Development. Over the course of his career at Kendall-Jackson, Simon has had oversight for each of the 50 states, developed distribution and marketing strategies, grew brand recognition and revenues and worked with every major wine distributor including Southern Wine & Spirits, Glazer's, The Charmer Sunbelt Group and RNDC.

"We are very proud and excited about Doug joining our team," announced David Herzog, president of Royal Wine.

We know that Doug, with his creativity, energy and skillset, will be the perfect complement to continue and expand upon these leadership roles. Doug will manage our national team in sales, marketing, strategic and distribution initiatives. With the depth of experience that Doug brings to Royal Wine, his leadership, enthusiasm and vision I am confident of his success and his ability to continue to expand upon our innovative style and the growth of the Royal Wine family of brands."
