SONOMA, Calif. (June 9, 2022) — Wine and spirits négociant, 3 Badge Beverage Corporation, today announced the hiring of Melena Elliott as Sales Market Manager overseeing the Florida and Georgia region and the promotion of Jennifer Klein to the newly-created Supply Chain Specialist position.

“With steady growth to both our enology and mixology businesses and the evolving requirements to meet those needs, we are excited to deepen our teams with two accomplished spirits industry veterans,” said 3 Badge Beverage Corporation founder and president, August Sebastiani. “I look forward to working with Melena and continuing with Jennifer to further shape the company’s path forward and build upon this time of impressive expansion.”
