BevStrat or Beverage Strategy is the one of the USA's most respected and successful brand placement, sales, and strategy companies. Based in over 30 years of Three Tier experience as well as partnerships in PricewaterhouseCoopers, the companies COO, Brian Rosen is regarded as the brand sherpa or brand whisperer for global brands looking to build a market in the USA, sales teams in the USA, and go-to market strategy in the USA.
The three- tier climate is in flux in the USA and suppliers are now expected to field their own sales and marketing teams.
Clients come from all over the United States, Europe, Australia, South America, Italy, and Europe. With the decline and consolidation of the distributor level of the three tier, sales team will become more and more relevant and more brands will need to create and manage them internally. That is what we do.
