Jill Leslie Joins Riondo USA


Date: 01/31/12

Riondo USA adds high-power broker Jill Leslie to head the company’s Regional Sales Manager. She will be responsible for Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, and Kansas.

Leslie began her wine career at The Wine Merchant in Cincinnati. Her talent with people was quickly discovered by distributor Vintner Select. At Vintner, she managed logistics as well as their California, New Zealand & Australian portfolios.

In 2006, Leslie launched her own brokerage firm, JL Selections, quickly building a book that included Spanish, California Australian, New Zealand wines, and Riondo!

“We’re excited to have Jill on board,” says John Blesse, Riondo USA’s national sales manager. “As an independent broker, Jill doubled growth in her region for Riondo in just a few short years. Her entrepreneurial spirit and take-no-prisoner mentality will continue to help us break records in growth and sales.”

Riondo stood out in the crowd,” says Leslie. “When I showed it, it always sold – I never have been shut out. I want to push this baby as far as I can – to the limit.”

Jill and her husband of 28 years live in Cincinnati. They both love animals and actively support local charities, such Cancer Family Care, Summerfair, and the Cincinnati International Wine Festival.
