Edward joined King Estate in 2011 as Northwest Regional Manager and was promoted to Vice President of Sales for the Northwest and Canada in 2016. He worked for industry leader Brown-Forman for 10 years prior to that, beginning as On-Premise Market Manager for Wines for the Northwest, then moving into a national accounts position representing the entire Brown-Forman portfolio. Edward's passion for wine began at a young age, when he was introduced to the industry by family friend and Washington wine pioneer Paul Thomas. That passion has stayed with him ever since. Edward completed the University of California, Davis, Wine Executive Program in 2014, and tirelessly pursues continued education and exposure to fine wine and cuisine. Born and raised in Seattle, Edward resides just outside the city and is the father of two children. When he isn’t talking about, selling or enjoying wine you can find him pursuing the myriad of outdoor activities that make the Northwest so special.
