Winesecrets Hires Jim Tubridy -- Veteran And Sales Professional As Services Sales Manager


Date: 03/31/14

American Winesecrets, LLC. (Winesecrets), North America’s leading wine filtration company, has hired Jim Tubridy as the services sales manager at its Sebastopol, CA headquarters. Tubridy has 18 years of Fortune 500 sales experience as well as recent wine industry experience as business development manager with centrifuge supplier Separator Technology Solutions LTD (STS). A former Marine, Tubridy provides Winesecrets with proven leadership skills and sales ability developed through stints with Novartis, Merck and Sunovion.

Hailing from the Chicago area, a posting to the Marine Corps Air Station in Tustin moved Tubridy to California for the first time. After his honorable discharge, Tubridy returned to the Mid West to complete degree requirements for a BA in English from Northern Illinois University. Following graduation, Tubridy moved to San Francisco and worked with Gallo Sales for two years before moving to pharmaceutical sales.

“Winesecrets is an exceptional opportunity for me to move back into the industry that attracted me 20 years ago,” says Tubridy. “The company allows me to blend a passion for wine and outstanding customer service in an environment that embraces veteran employment and promotion.”

“Tubridy brings a professional sales skill set that we have been seeking to continue to grow our industry presence,” remarked Eric Dahlberg, president of American Winesecrets. “Jim will provide outstanding service to our existing customers and seek to expand Winesecrets’ client base. We are honored to have him as a part of the Winesecrets’ team.”

As a 2013 California Veteran Employer of the Year in the Small Private Business category, Winesecrets actively seeks to leverage the skills and education brought to the workplace by America’s Veterans. The company has made veteran hires a priority and approximately 40 percent of the personnel at Winesecrets have a military background. Winesecrets has developed an on-job-training program to provide incoming veterans with industry specific skills while working at its wine production facility.

Winesecrets offers outsourced wine production services, to include VA and other taint removal, alcohol reduction, other specialized filtration, high-proof alcohol sales, and bulk wine storage.
