Culture Eats Strategy for Breakfast

Ben Salisbury

Enabler of Entrepreneurship

“Bob and I created this company because we wanted to provide a place for industry veterans to build something for themselves and their families that could never be taken away from them. An opportunity to enjoy unlimited income by leveraging all the relationships they created over their careers.”

Bob Mc Lachlan

Chief of Culture

“You wake up one day and ask “Why am I on this planet?” I joined Green Glass Global to start something special. It enabled me to provide a portfolio of products for like-minded people to represent and sell while living a life worth living, and provide the opportunity for wine, spirits, or alternative beverages to stand in front of a key buyer and have them say yes or no without all the usual industry clutter of, “It can’t be done.” I love what I do!”

Stacey Burkman

Relationship Builder

“Green Glass Global offered me the opportunity to utilize my 10+ years in the industry to help recruit talented wine and spirits experts and match them up with suppliers of all shapes and sizes. To help those brands achieve their goals in the market both through wholesale and DTC channels.”

Linda Lofstrom

Sales Roadmapper

“From many years of pounding the pavement, I discovered there are many paths and roads to sales glory. During my corporate sales years, the paths and roads were rigid and sometimes unproductive. At GGG, we are nimble, we listen, we help brands find the right road to their success. All while also finding my road to life balance!”

Jim Grace

Creative Director of Free Time Management

“Happiness is a choice and GGG allows me to exercise that choice. I have the freedom to live my lifestyle without corporate interference. GGG gives me the ability to create my own vision, schedule, accounts to successfully execute the goals of our vendors.”

Carl Stunz

Captain Container

“I have enjoyed the opportunity to work as an independent broker with Green Glass Global. The team has vast experience in the beverage industry, expertise in many areas of the business, and are all like-minded professionals.

I appreciate the flexibility that GGG provides to focus on my business, and develop success with their partners. I’m able to focus on the buyer relationships I have developed over the years to bring success to the company.”

Bridget Ellis

“After stepping away from my career to focus on raising my three children, I wanted to get back into the workplace; however, I wasn’t quite sure how. Green Glass Global was the perfect fit for me. It afforded me the flexibility to work anywhere in the world.  I have been blessed to live in an area surrounded by cutting edge trends, buyers, and suppliers in Northwest Arkansas, home to Walmart, JB Hunt, and Tyson.”

Fred Brown

Director of Fun

“My Identity is all-encompassing of my memories, work experience, feelings, thoughts, relationship & my true values. They define who I am & what I have accomplished over many years.
In a nutshell….I am a lot more than just “one thing”…..
I have found my authentic self at Green Glass Global and am able to live a true life and pursue my meaningful goals….”

Bill Barry

Sales Guru

“I love being with Green Glass Global because we have a wide array of brands that customers love. 3G has curated an amazing portfolio of wines, spirits, CBD, and non-alc beverages. It is much easier to be successful when you love the products you sell!”

Michael Greenfeld

Chief Experimental Ambassador

“The main reason that I enjoy working with Green Glass Global is that I have the freedom to leverage my relationships with buyers and key decision makers to ascertain their needs and wants and to be able to fulfill those requirements. It’s a very unique situation with a company that I haven’t experienced in more than thirty-five years in the business.”

David DuVarney

Mercenary for Wine & Spirits Acquisition and Deployment

“Why I like 3G, I get to show and tell fine wine and spirits from the little guys that get lost in the big books most never to see the light of day. 3G puts more feet on the street to benefit of all!

Cheers”

Carl Sanchez

“I have over 25 years of hands on experience in the hospitality, Grocery and wine and spirits businesses. 
I gained an appreciation for fine wine and spirits while working as a General Manager at a fine Italian bistro. This new found appreciation sparked me to move into the wine and spirits wholesale world working with top distributors.
I also have a strong belief in building solid, long lasting relationships with my account base.”

Chrisy Hurst

Queen of Clubs

” I love wine. I love people. And I love my independence. I’ve been on the supplier side and the distributor side. It was time for me to do something different. I wanted to continue my path in the wine industry and expand my spirits horizons without having the usual corporate world constraints. Working as a broker with Green Glass allows me to have it all…freedom to manage my own business, relationships, and time while engaging with their partners and having access to great resources under a fantastic support system.”
