The Challenge

After acquiring three Sonoma brands, Bacas Family Estates needed to drive stronger bottom line growth – as several brands needed improved market positioning.

The Solution

  • Drove change management and cross functional team alignment.
  • Board of Directors presentation and recommendations.
  • Detailed organization of the future structure and strategy.
