The National Beer Wholesalers Association is pleased to announce that Gerardo "G" Carrillo has won the 2019 Share Your Story contest! In its fifth year of sharing stories from beer distribution employees around the country, the annual contest is an opportunity to highlight the industry's 141,000 men and women who make up the independent beer distribution industry.
As the winner, Carrillo received a complimentary trip to the 2019 NBWA Legislative Conference, April 7-10, in Washington, D.C., where he learned more about policy issues surrounding the beer industry and its consumers. Additionally, he had the opportunity to attend meetings on Capitol Hill to educate Members of Congress and their staff about the prominent role independent beer distributors play in their communities.
"I am honored to be this year's Share Your Story winner and represent Silver Eagle Distributors in Washington, D.C," Carrillo said.
Carrillo joined Houston-based Silver Eagle Distributors in 2014 as a Side Loader Driver before working up to his current position as Sales and Marketing Administrator.
"I hope that sharing my passion for my job with lawmakers will help them better understand the importance of beer distributors in communities across the country," Carrillo continued.
"We are a unique industry and truly offer the best jobs in the world."
