Miami, Florida-based Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits has appointed Tim Anderson to the role of SVP and general manager of Kansas and Iowa, effective immediately. Anderson, who will continue to report directly to Scott Westerman, the EVP of the North Central Sub Region, will be responsible for the company’s performance in both states. He adds Iowa to his current responsibility and replaces John D’Attoma, who recently retired.
“Tim has been a proven leader over the course of his 14-year career at Southern Glazer’s and has been extremely successful in his leadership of Kansas,” Westerman said. “I am confident that he will only continue to build upon our success in the state of Iowa.”
Anderson received a bachelor’s degree in marketing from North Central College in Naperville, Illinois. He began his career in the wine and spirits industry in 1987, when he joined Romano Brothers in Chicago, Illinois, as a retail sales representative. Anderson also worked in various roles at Johnson Brothers, General Beverage and Gallo before joining Glazer’s in 2007, and was promoted to SVP and general manager of the state of Kansas in 2012.
