Director of Tequila Chamber to step downBy Melita Kiely
The director general of the National Chamber of the Tequila Industry (CNIT) will step down from his position next month after 10 years in the role.
Francisco Soltero announced his departure yesterday and will leave the role on 1 June in order to “undertake new responsibilities and projects”.
“It has been slightly more than 10 extraordinary years of learning and working side by side the tequileros with the objective of helping this important industry to become even better,” Soltero said.
“There are many, many people to whom I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me the opportunity to grow as a person by getting to know you.
“I would like to make a special mention to those who trusted me to work together with them in the Chamber and also to the great team that is part of this institution, a team that allowed me to spend so many days and years with them, my deepest gratitude.
“I am excited because of this change. I will continue to be related to this beloved Tequila industry.”
The CNIT was founded in 1959 with an aim to represent, promote and protect common interests of member Tequila companies.
