Vinventions Announces Addition of New California-Based Sales Manager for Vintop Screwcaps, Alexandra Stump
Napa, CA (July 17, 2017) — Vinventions, the parent company of Nomacorc and worldwide leader of complete wine closure solutions, has announced that industry veteran Alexandra Stump has joined the team as a Sales Manager in California. The move marks yet another high-profile appointment as the company continues to grow and expand its offerings outside Nomacorc’s PlantCorc closures, the most widely recognized of the Vinventions brands.
Alexandra, who has over 14 years of experience in the wine packaging business, will be based primarily out of Napa and Sonoma County, and will be responsible with providing customers with Vinventions’ full range of product offerings across the region. In particular, she will focus on Vintop, the high-performance screwcap closure offered by the company. In addition to industry-leading décor capabilities, Vintop offers one of the largest selections of stock and standard color options. “We’re very excited to have Alex onboard,” says Mark Coleman, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the Americas at Vinventions. “Her extensive experience, professional reputation and knowledge of the closures market will be an invaluable resource for our U.S. sales team.”
“Alex will be a great addition to the West Coast sales unit,” says Malcolm Thompson, President of the Americas at Vinventions. “We’re confident that her considerable knowledge and winery relationships will reinforce and support the growing demand for Vintop in the U.S. today.”
Prior to joining the Vinventions team, Alexandra was a sales executive at Amcor Flexibles and, before that, a sales and marketing associate at Champagne André Clouet in Bouzy, France.
Vinventions was created by family entrepreneur Marc Noël with Bespoke Capital Partners, Heino Freudenberg and additional partners. Vinventions’ goal is to become the most innovative and trusted global supplier of wine closure solutions to the still and sparkling wine industries. In January 2015, Vinventions acquired Nomacorc, the leading global supplier of premium plant-based closures to the wine industry. In July 2015, Ohlinger Group joined Vinventions, and in November 2015, Vinventions completed a distribution agreement with Vinolok/Vinoseal, adding high-performance glass closures to its growing range of wine closure solutions. Today, Vinventions has over 550 employees globally and operates six production sites in USA, Belgium, Germany, France, Argentina, and China. Vinventions protects every eighth wine bottle worldwide with its closures. The leadership values of Vinventions center on customer dedication, innovation, operational excellence, open teamwork, local entrepreneurship, and long-term responsibility. www.vinventions.com
