Doug Griswold Joins Quintessential's Sale Team in San Francisco

Posted on June 20, 2013

Family-owned fine wine import, marketing and sales company, Quintessential, has announced that Douglas H. Griswold has returned to Quintessential to manage off- and on-premise sales in the “city by the bay” after a three-year hiatus. Griswold first worked with the company as San Francisco sales representative from 2007 through 2009.

Based on the sales growth he secured for Quintessential’s wines in his territory, he was named Quintessential “Sales Representative of the Year” in 2008.  He left to become regional sales manager for another importer, managing distributors and sales in a number of Western and Midwestern states. Prior to his initial tenure with Quintessential, Griswold was a sales representative for a number of major distributors and importers in the Bay Area.

Born in Mount Kisco, New York and raised in Orlando, Florida, he received a BA from Florida State University. He currently resides in San Leandro, California with his wife and children.
