ISBG Taps Industry Legend Art Massolo for Key Role in Emerging Division


LAS VEGAS, NV, Aug. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- International Spirits and Beverage Group Inc. (OTCQB:ISBG) ("ISBG" or the "Company"), a top-tier brand incubator in the Global Wine & Spirits market, is thrilled to announce that industry legend Art Massolo has agreed to come on board as a Senior Consultant to simultaneously lead ISBG's in-house Brand Development division and spearhead the Company's new Targeted Acquisition initiative.

"Art is a beast in this industry. He's a prodigy. We are really excited to have him on our side," commented ISBG CEO Terry Williams. "Art has an active network that will dramatically facilitate our efforts. He has lived in nine countries, speaks four languages, and has strong access to virtually every major beverage retailer, supplier, importer, distributor, and winery in Europe, Asia, Latin America, North America, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa."

Mr. Massolo has been a top player in the $391 billion global wine and beverage industry for over two decades. He has been critical to the development of a number of world-class brands, including Franzia, Origin, Trivento, and Cono Sur. As a direct result of his involvement, Franzia became the top imported wine in China, Origin vaulted into the top 10 most popular wines in the UK, and Cono Sur became the single best selling Chilean wine in the UK and the second-ranked wine export in all of Chile.

"I'm excited to join the growing team at ISBG. The brand incubator platform that these guys have been building is something that speaks to me on a profound level. The game is changing. And this is the model that I believe is most likely to succeed on a pure ROI basis. The timing is perfect and I'm ready to get started," stated Art Massolo.  

Management notes that Mr. Massolo's direct experience developing products in the CBD-infused beverage space was also an important factor in the Company's decision to bring him on board.
