Dave Ernst

On-premise Account Manager

 

How long have you been with the company? I’ve been with the company for 9 years, but I’ve been working in the beer industry for 23.
 
What other positions have you held in the company? I have always been part of the sales department.
 
What has been the best thing about your job? Even though we call on the same accounts every week, every day is a little different. I enjoy making new friends and being a part of the lives of the accounts that I’ve been calling on for years.
 
What does your current job entail? As an on-premise account manager, I create relationships with bar, restaurant, hotel and golf course owners. I earn their trust by working together to build their business and our brands.
 
What does it take to be a top-notch salesman? I’ve found over the years that my accounts have gained more trust in me because I’m not the “old school”, aggressive salesperson out for his own personal gains. Instead, I work with them to sell in products that, together, we will have success selling.
 
What do you like to do when you’re not working? When I’m not working, I enjoy golfing, working out, watching Philly sports and spending time with people I care about.
 
If you could be anywhere, drinking any beer, where would you be and what beer would you have in your hand? I’d be in Las Vegas with a Miller Lite while playing Wheel of Fortune! Or at one of my accounts drinking a Truly.
