PHILLIPSBURG, NJ – Hunterdon is pleased to announce the promotion of Jeff Rancan to the position of sales manager for both the on-premise and off-premise sales divisions of the company. Jeff has been a valuable asset to the Hunterdon team for the past seven years as both a sales rep and the on-premise sales manager. During this time he has contributed significantly to the company’s growth and success.
His hard work and dedication have helped to establish Hunterdon as New Jersey’s premier craft beer distributor.
Since taking over the on-premise sales manager role, Hunterdon’s on-premise business has grown approximately 40% each year. In addition, he has helped build one of the most knowledgeable sales teams in the state. Each of Hunterdon’s twenty-three sales reps has benefited from Jeff’s extensive knowledge of craft beer, draft systems and the beer industry. Jeff received his Cicerone Certification in 2011 and has since then helped over a dozen sales reps pass the exam. He has also greatly enhanced the level of awareness and education about craft beer among retailers throughout the state.
“Jeff’s passion for craft beer combined with his industry experience and significant contributions to Hunterdon over the past seven years make him ideally suited for the sales manager position. The craft beer scene is booming and Hunterdon is growing rapidly. We are very happy and proud to have Jeff on board and would like to congratulate him on his promotion,” stated Hunterdon Co-Founder and Company President Michael Short.
