Who is Brown-Forman?
B-F’s business in Ukraine and CIS covers 11 markets. The business has significant growth opportunities for the long-term, but also faces high levels of VUCA to manage.
B-F has two of the top premium brands in these markets: Jack Daniel’s and Finlandia Vodka. We are also expanding and developing the Jack Daniel’s family of brands and super-premium whiskey.
We use a 3rd party route-to-consumer model, working with 13 different distributor partners and collaborating with and influencing their sales & marketing teams. Ukraine is the largest market in B-F’s European & African alliance with Coca-Cola Hellenic.
