He was Senior Vice President of sales and marketing for Young’s Market Company, which is one of the largest beverage alcohol distributors in the United States2.  Mr. Swadish also served as Chief Operating Officer of Skyy Vodka, which was one of the largest brand introductions in the history of the U.S. spirits industry.
