cCHICAGO, ILLINOIS — “Wheels up, baby! Flight number one of the year, and I’m starting it off with a first class upgrade!” Ricky Ronaldo posted on Facebook this afternoon, with a photo of liquor minis next to his laptop. A former bartender, Ricky has been working in the brand world for 7 months now.

 

“In this role, it’s important to connect with bartenders. You have to stay humble and look at them eye to eye.  It’s all about bridging the gap between the bar and the brand, showing them that we’re in this together,” he said to us via Facebook DM.
