Cape Beverage is thrilled to announce the promotion of Chris Verderame to Brand Manager.
In Chris’ new role, he will be working very closely with all Cape Beverage suppliers to fulfill our commitment to providing premium customer service. Chris will act as a liaison between Cape Beverage and our world-class suppliers to implement sales strategies, grow volume, and enhance our supplier-distributor relationships.
Chris has been with Cape Beverage since 2019, and previously covered four counties in South Jersey as a Sales Representative.
He began his career at New Jersey distributor Warren Distributing in 2008 before moving over to the craft side and joining Victory Brewing Company in Pennsylvania. Since joining the Cape Beverage team, Chris has been Crushin’ It ever since! He has steadily increased our sales numbers, and takes pride in introducing new brands to our customers.
“I started in the beer industry in 2008, two weeks after graduating with a communications degree from William Paterson University,” Chris notes. “I started as a merchandiser, then moved into sales at Warren Distributing Co. South, a MillerCoors wholesaler covering South Jersey.”
He has a wide range of experience, making him the ideal partner for Cape Beverage’s craft brands for a truly personalized experience from someone who understands all of the aspects around distributing your brand to new markets.
