Seeking Production or Promotions Position in a Winery
My name is Darren Bowker and I am currently looking for work in the Virginia Wine industry. Ideally, I would like to find a job either in production or promotions at a winery in or near the Charlottesville, but am not locked into that area.
I have been in the wine industry for 15+ years. I have worked in both the Willamette Valley in Oregon and in the Finger Lakes Region in New York. My primary skills are in production, but I have 7+ years experience in retail sales and promotion, with a little experience in wholesale as well.
I have been the head winemaker at the last two wineries I worked at, as well as the retail sales manager at the last winery I was employed with. I am willing to take a position that can utilize my skills in a capacity that may not be at these levels, in order to get an opportunity to help a small artisan winery get it’s name out there.
If you have any interest, please e-mail me at darrenb74@hotmail and I can send my resume for you to look over. Thank you for your time and consideration on this matter.
