Each year, over a hundred employees are promoted from the merchandising divisions or from other entry-level positions.

They take jobs in merchandising management, direct store sales, and broad market sales.  In some cases, employees take a position within our supplier network.

This "promote from within" philosophy enables us to sustain manpower levels in today's competitive job market.  While we continue to "promote from within," we develop a culture that is consistent throughout the organization.
By the time an individual becomes a member of the upper management team, they have successfully performed several different jobs.  They have a clear understanding of the daily challenges faced by the people they manage.

Southern Wine and Spirits Executive Management Team in California has over 450 years of combined experience with the company.  Each member of our executive staff averages 14+ years with SWS.
