Reporting directly to Precept Wine Chief Sales Officer Kirk Brewer, Aimee will create new reporting systems that give highly detailed performance outlooks by brand, by distributor, by internal sales teams and chain networks. She will also analyze data to identify opportunities and trends that maximize sales efforts.
