Spindrift was entering a unique growth stage with its decision to expand into the alcohol beverage category. Due to the regulatory nature of alcoholic beverages, the products could not be sold through the same distributors the company had relied on to grow and scale their flagship non-alc products. Furthermore, the skills and experience required to sell alcoholic products vary from non-alc. It presented both a unique opportunity and challenge for talent to cross-sell both products to retailers. To succeed in this highly competitive market, they needed to build out a sales team to help scale their new spiked line. 



ForceBrands engaged with Spindrift’s HR and senior sales team to develop a growth strategy that entailed creating and hiring six new roles that included senior key account managers, regional distribution managers, and sales directors. ForceBrands supported these hiring efforts with a five-person recruiting team and an assigned, dedicated project manager. ForceBrands filled all six roles in a timely manner. ForceBrands sourced and hired talent that bridged the gap between the alc and non-alc universe to collaborate and sell as a more holistic team.
