Luna Vineyards Names Lance Hooker California Specialist


Date: 05/16/13

Andre Crisp, president of Luna Vineyards Sales Company, introduced Luna's new in-house sales team: Michael Kasper, vice president of sales and national programming; Adrian Dedering, Western United States sales manager; and Lance Hooker, California specialist. International partnerships will continue to be led by Andre Crisp.

"The addition of an in-house team is increasingly valuable on the business-of-wine landscape; we have significantly strengthened Luna's fundamental business model," said Crisp. "By placing 'feet on the street', we are seeing immediate growth and an overwhelmingly positive response from our distributors. We are confident in Michael's, Adrian's, and Lance's ability to fulfill their laser-focused roles: positioning Luna Vineyards to thrive in this new economy and aggressively driving sales revenues through our worldwide distributors."

Lance Hooker, the California specialist, is a Juris Doctorate-turned-oenophile. "When the opportunity presented itself to join Luna Vineyards, it was one that I had to take. Luna has a world-class reputation, built over 20 years of high performance, product integrity, and brand building."
