eWinery Solutions Hires Patrick Baker as New National Sales Manager


Date: 06/10/13

eWinery Solutions, architect of VinSuite, the wine industry's first comprehensive and fully integrated cloud-based business solution, announced the appointment of Patrick Baker as national sales director operating from their offices in Napa, California. Baker will be responsible for managing the existing eWinery sales force and setting strategy for future sales growth.

"Patrick was a natural fit for eWinery Solutions," says Richard Kline, founder and CEO of eWinery Solutions. "Patrick’s firsthand experience with our newly added VINx2 cloud-based, production software module for VinSuite is key to our overall solutions approach. We are looking forward to having him and his staff creatively target growth opportunities and advantages for our existing and new winery customers' businesses."

Baker has an extensive history in winemaking management, production, IT and sales, most recently as general manager for a 25,000-case Russian River Valley winery. Prior to that, Baker was general manager at Carneros Vintners custom crush facility in Sonoma, California. He moved from the corporate business world to wine in 2003, and has helped start three wineries and assisted many more as a hands-on business manager. As a seasoned member of the wine industry, he will guide a sales team promoting the eWinery Solutions' range of cloud-based products specific to the wine industry.

"My experience with winery daily operations and critical customer needs is the foundation I’ll be working from to help eWinery Solutions' current customers make the most effective use of our products," says Baker. "My desire is to help them realize revenue opportunities and management advantages, while also targeting specific segments of the wine industry that need eWinery Solutions but don’t yet know about all we offer. This is an exciting time in the wine industry, and it's time for wineries to take the next step into cloud-based solutions that better reach their goals and enhance profitability. I’m excited to be a part of promoting this evolution within the industry that I am so passionate about."
