Historical Stock Chart
1 Year : From Jun 2012 to Jun 2013
California Grapes International, Inc. (OTCPINK: CAGR), a leading
provider of full service export, marketing, promotions, distribution and
sales for the California Wine Industry, internationally, has hired Mr.
Tom Rappé as the new VP of International Business Development.
Mr. Rappé is a 20 year veteran in the wine industry and has an extensive
background in the exportation and customer development process. His
professional career in the wine industry has given him a broad range of
expertise with all facets of wine sales from the “Branded Producers” to
the “Bulk” and “Private Label” suppliers. With a track record of
participation in cross-national business development and broad
experience in international sales strategies, contract negotiations,
relationship building, product development, and project management, Mr.
Rappé has strong communication and interpersonal skills, and is
successful in customer orientation in cross-culture environments.
Mr. Rappé will be heading up the Broker Alliance Program (“BAP”) for
California Grapes International (“CGI”) as his primary role. His
experience in both the European and Asian markets provide for an
understanding and “network of value” that will be beneficial in the
further development of the brokers CGI brings into the “BAP” program.
Mr. Rappé has been focused as a buyer’s agent for many years. His
“service based” sales approach and expertise in “Bulk” and “Private
Label” wine sales will round out the CGI offerings and provide for many
more market opportunities.
“Tom’s success in this industry has been based on the simple
philosophy of providing a customer what they want to buy not sell them
what he has to offer. His understanding of the value that CGI offers in
this respect, and the ability to provide the largest portfolio of
California wine outside the US market, makes for a perfect match. The
opportunities and resources that Tom brings to the table are very
exciting and truly enhance the CGI team!” – Jeffrey Crittenden – CEO
California Grapes International, Inc.
