“The U.S. in particular is a vital market for us and so this is a key appointment as we look to expand Compass Box’s presence in the Americas as part of our mission to grow the brand. Jeff will also be part of our passionate Global Leadership Team.”

“I knew when I first tasted Compass Box Whisky 20 years ago as Field Sales Manager in Florida, I was in love,” Popkin said. “The quality of liquid, combined with their unique storytelling, made me a believer from day one and I couldn’t be more excited to be back working with this incredible brand again.”
