With more than 20 years experience in the UK, including the last 12 years at Carlsberg UK - most recently as Sales Director - Lee will take responsibility for ROK Drink's Sales and Distribution operations where his significant industry experience and relationships will further accelerate distribution of the ROK Drinks portfolio which, as well as the 700 year old ABK Bavarian Beer includes Graffiti Wine, sourced globally, Bogart's Spirits from California and Bandero Tequila from Mexico.
