Jose Castellvi has joined WEBB Banks in the newly created role of Vice President, Travel Retail and Spirits. Reporting to WEBB Banks CEO Andy Consuegra, Castellvi will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the company’s growing spirits portfolio, as well as cultivating and maintaining relationships with duty free partners. WEBB Banks is the leading premium wine and spirits distributor for travel retail, the Caribbean and Central America.
Castellvi joins the WEBB Banks senior leadership team of Phillip Jarrell, Kam Snow, and Juan Carlos Rodriquez.
Prior to joining WEBB Banks, Castellvi spent 16 years at William Grant & Sons in various roles in Latin America and the Caribbean, most recently as Regional President Travel Retail Americas and Caribbean. He also served for six years as President of Bacardi Dominicana SA in the Dominican Republic, and before that was General Manager of United Distillers in the region.
“We’re excited to welcome Jose to the team! His decades of supplier and distributor management experience, as well as his extra- ordinary wine and spirits knowledge, will be invaluable as we continue to position WEBB Banks for future growth,” said Consuegra. “2020 was undoubtedly a challenging period for our industry, but we’re very proud of our success and accomplishments last year, and with Jose’s help we’re looking forward to building on that now in 2021.”
“In the 1950s, my father was a liquor distributor in Cuba, and I’m proud every day to have followed in his footsteps, spending the past 30-plus years in this dynamic industry,” said Castellvi.
“It’s definitely a highlight of my career, joining Andy and the talented team at WEBB Banks to grow distribution in the region, and help this organization continue to reach new heights and continued successes.”
