“Mark is an outstanding and highly accomplished business and military leader.

“His decades of leadership in the United States army’s special operations command, followed by his successful commercial career with both public and private companies, bring a huge amount of experience to our team and our company as we continue to grow rapidly. We will benefit greatly from his leadership, judgment, and guidance.”

In October last year, Bardstown Bourbon Company appointed Sazerac’s Herb Heneman as its new vice president of brand sales and marketing.
