Tullamore D.E.W. has welcomed the addition of two new Ambassadors to the U.S. Market—Gillian Murphy and Donna Stewart—who join National Ambassador, Tim Herlihy, as East and West Coast Ambassadors, respectively.
Gillian Murphy, residing in Chicago, will cover the East Coast market while Donna Stewart, residing in Los Angeles, will cover the West Coast. Together, the three lead a larger team comprised of 16 Ambassadors including local market representatives, thereby covering all corners of the U.S. and will share pours, cocktails and all things hospitality for Tullamore D.E.W.
East Coast Ambassador Gillian Murphy will oversee the Eastern region of the U.S. including the Chicago and New York markets. Gillian hails from Cork, Ireland (the “real capital” as locals claim) and joined the trainee brand ambassador program with Tullamore D.E.W. after graduating from university in 2015. She went on to serve as the in-market Tullamore D.E.W. Trainee in South Florida before a stint in London working with William Grant in their Global Travel Retail department.
Born in Boston and raised in Dublin, West Coast Ambassador Donna Stewart will oversee the Western region of the U.S. including Los Angeles and San Francisco. Donna has held jobs in the hospitality and social media marketing industries for the past several years, developing early ambassador traits along the way. Always armed with a new bottle of Irish whiskey from her travels to Ireland, Donna passionately shares her discoveries with her fellow whiskey lovers and industry colleagues in L.A. and across the U.S.
“I’m looking forward to working alongside two highly qualified Ambassadors as we aim to spread the love of Tullamore D.E.W. across the country. They each have an expansive knowledge of the whiskey category and having both work together to cover all of our U.S. markets is wonderful asset for our brand.”
– Tim Herlihy, National Ambassador
Completing the robust team of 16 full time Ambassadors across the country, the new hires are a testament to Tullamore D.E.W.’s momentum—they join the #2 Irish whiskey brand globally in the fastest growing spirits category by volume, following a new distillery opening and visitor’s center unveil in 2014.
