The Distilled Spirits Council of the United States (DISCUS) has announced four companies have joined the organization as Partner Members in the second quarter of 2022. This brings the total number of Partner Member companies to 58.
“We created the Partner Member Program to further enhance our advocacy efforts while creating a means to receive important input and technical expertise from our industry partners on key issues facing the industry,” said Chris Swonger, president and CEO of DISCUS and Responsibility.org. “We’re proud to have these new partner members, each of which are engaged in shaping tomorrow’s distilled spirits marketplace.”
The new Partner Members are:
- Brand Muscle
- Charter Brokerage
- SoMax Circular Solutions
“As the Partner Membership Program has grown over the last three years, we’ve not only seen these companies provide additional value to our Director and Craft members, but we also have watched those industry partners forge meaningful business relationships with key players in the distilled spirits sector, which only enhances those businesses and our sector as a whole,” said Joe Donadoni, vice president of member relations at DISCUS.
Donadoni said that in the past year, more than 80 representatives of Partner Member companies have participated in high-profile thought-leadership opportunities, including Ask the Expert sessions, the DISCUS Annual Conference, industry-wide webinars, and DISCUS Academy.
