His background includes numerous positions at Holston Distributing Company (including eight years as General Manager) and various leadership roles within Miller Brewing Company, Consolidated Beverage Distributors and Anheuser-Busch, Inc.
In his new role at Warsteiner USA, Montano will oversee the U.S. sales team and is charged with expanding distribution and increasing market share for Warsteiner products.
"Steve's vast industry knowledge and proven leadership are tremendous assets to our company," said Hoetzel. "Throughout his tenure with Warsteiner USA, Steve has built a strong reputation with his high-energy, team-first approach. We're excited to see how his efforts will continue to expand the Warsteiner brand in the United States."
