California Sales Manager
At Silver Oak/Twomey since: 2014
Joseph Tomlinson came to Silver Oak and Twomey with twenty-one years of sales and management experience at a major California wine distributor, followed by two years as the national sales director for a small Napa producer. Tim Duncan offered Joseph the position while he was attending Release Day with his wife Christine. "The three of us were chatting in a quiet barrel room when Tim surprised me with the offer. I’m usually fairly reserved, but my wife was jumping up and down, very excited. It was really special and meant a lot to us."
With responsibility for overall California sales and the internal Sales Support Team, Joseph's job is to ensure that Silver Oak and Twomey deliver the very best in service to our restaurant and retail customers and support the Regional Sales Managers in the field. "I get to work with an outstanding team of professionals who are highly motivated, genuinely nice and authentic; we're all committed to the same goal." And though he’s worked with many wineries in his career, Joseph says there is something special about Silver Oak and Twomey. "The Duncan family just gets it."
