Jackson Family Wines President Rick Tigner will open the 2015 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium as the keynote speaker during the luncheon on Tuesday, January 27. Tigner will address key issues affecting U.S. wine companies in a highly competitive global marketplace, including the constraints U.S. wine producers face when growing their labels, addressing foreign market opportunities, and overcoming the challenges of sustainably managing resources and controlling costs in California’s highly regulated environment. He will also discuss where wine stands in today’s dynamic beverage alcohol marketplace. President since 2010, Tigner’s responsibilities at Jackson Family Wines, the family-owned collection of more than 35 wineries, include leading and building global sales, marketing/communications, production and farming organizations as well as administrative functions. He has been involved in the beverage industry for 30 years. A winemaker himself, Tigner serves on the Board of Directors of Vinexpo, one of the wine industry’s most respected global trade organizations, and the Michael J. Fox Foundation, which helps raise money to find a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
