Jordan Vineyard & Winery has promoted Chris Avery to the position of National Sales Director, effective June 1, 2011. Most recently Midwest Regional Sales Director at Jordan, Avery brings more than eight years experience in distribution and sales to the new position.

“Chris’s appointment is central to our company’s commitment to being an agile, adaptive business partner and an industry leader in innovative sales programs,” said John Jordan, CEO and second-generation vintner. “Utilizing his dynamic expertise on a national level will ensure our continued growth and success in this new era of doing business.”

Since joining Jordan in 2007, Avery has been highly successful at strategically expanding distribution, managing vital wholesaler and account relationships, growing Jordan’s business, and integrating meaningful sales and marketing tools in the field. Prior to Jordan, Avery served as Regional Sales Director at Oyster Bay Wines, USA.

As National Sales Director, Avery will manage executive relationships with wholesalers and oversee the winery’s team of regional sales directors and sales support staff. He will also continue working closely with Jordan’s Communications team to ensure the venerable winery remains the industry innovator in providing cutting-edge digital and print sales tools, as well as video content, to its customers.

Avery is based in Colorado for convenient access to all U.S. markets; he succeeds Reid Harper.
