My name is Hope Cortez and I have worked at Republic National Distributing Company for 14 years. I began my career with RNDC in Austin, Texas as a retail wine Sales Representative and was promoted to a District Manager. As a District Manager I managed a team of six sales representatives and two sales assistants. After this role I relocated to South Carolina and became the Regional Training Manager for the state. In this role I trained and developed all sales reps and managers throughout the state. This year I was promoted to Chain Manager and am responsible for six chains for the state. I am passionate about retail wine and am back where I love being with the company focusing on chain sales. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family- my husband Mark and our two children Miles (5) and Isabella (2).
