A Brief History.
In 2018, two Thomases found themselves wanting to use their skills and experience to help Northwest wineries, but without the big price tags & lengthy processes that usually come along with agencies and consulting firms. So, rather than waiting for such a consultancy to come into existence, Breve Consulting was created. Founded by two Thomases with relevant industry experience, a passion to help wineries, and a common-sense, “no fluff” mentality.
Thomas thrives on solving problems and discerning the subtleties that allow (or inhibit) a winery to grow and flourish. This entails in-depth experience in brand building, distributor acquisition, business development, and making that precise connection that’s needed to push a product to the top of the pile.
With nearly 20 years in the wine business in the Pacific Northwest, Thomas understands the challenges that small wineries face, and knows that every problem is eminently solvable. While Thomas is known for candor as well as quick thinking & timely action, he’s also recognized as a loyal advocate that’s constantly striving for success. As a problem-solver, Thomas realizes that your solutions may seem to be just beyond your reach. Bringing a fresh perspective to these situations is where he excels.
Thomas lead National and Export Sales for Woodward Canyon for more than 15 years. During that time, he built national brands, loyal & lucrative export markets (Japan and Canada), and developed C-level contacts throughout the US and abroad.
Thomas specializes in marketing & communications, data analysis, brand development & management, as well as efficient and strategic marketing tactics across mixed media channels.
With more than 7 years of diverse experience in marketing & communications, Thomas brings insights and effective strategies to help solve problems. This experience stems from working with a variety of agencies and a broad range of accounts spanning many industries including food & beverage, consumer packaged goods, non-profit organizations, casinos, and even plastic cups (not those red ones you’re thinking of).
While working with GreenRubino, (a local integrated agency), Thomas discovered a passion for the Northwest Wine industry. This passion led him to gain direct employment with the Washington State Wine Commission and lead domestic marketing efforts for the organization, working directly with many wineries and industry influencers. For the last 5 years, Thomas has focused on marketing the Washington State Wine industry from coast-to-coast in the United States.
