Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits has appointed Anthony Capparelli to the position of General Manager of South Florida, effective immediately.
In this role, Capparelli will be responsible for the company’s performance in South Florida, and will report directly to Patrick Cassidy, whom Capparelli replaces and who was recently promoted to EVP and GM of Florida.
“Anthony is a results-driven sales leader with a proven history of improving processes, growing revenues, and developing top-performing sales teams,” says Cassidy. “His unwavering commitment to exceed suppliers’ goals and expectations at all times truly sets him apart. Anthony is the perfect fit for this role, and I am confident that he will take South Florida to even greater heights.”
Capparelli has worked for Southern Glazer’s for 14 years, advancing through commercial sales roles of increasing responsibility, from sales management to VP-level positions. In his most recent role as vice president of on premise for the South Florida division, he led a team of dynamic sales professionals, supporting multiple company suppliers in South Florida’s fast-paced on-premise market.
His backfill for this position will be announced in the coming weeks.
“Anthony accomplishes everything with the customer in mind,” says Gene Sullivan, president, east region for Southern Glazer’s. “He does an exceptional job of building high-performing, customer-focused sales teams, which will be invaluable to the Company’s continued growth and momentum in South Florida.”
