TORONTO, CA  – Beerlicious Inc., the leading Beer Festival producers and “brand in hand” sampling company in Canada, is pleased to announce today the new hire of Jonathan Sinden as Vice President of Marketing, effective immediately.

Jon comes to Beerlicious with extensive marketing experience from Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment where he served as the Director of Integrated Marketing.

Prior to MLSE, Jon was the Director of Marketing at 102.1 The Edge. He’ll draw on this vast media experience in his new role at Beerlicious to help define events such as Toronto’s Festival of Beer with the next generation of beer lovers in Canada.

“Jon brings energy, experience, and unique perspective to our business, and we are thrilled to have him join the team,” says President Les Murray. “Jon is an incredibly talented executive with the rare ability to deeply understand technology, brand strategy, analytics, and the ever changing marketing needs of our festivals, events and client activations.

As Vice President of Marketing Jon will work to ensure all of our activations are at the forefront of Social and traditional media.”

Festival Founder and CEO, Greg Cosway also adds “I’ve known Jon for many years now and his ability to drive marketing strategy through technological innovation and Social Media make him an invaluable asset for us as the media and advertising landscape continues to shift. Jon is uniquely positioned to help sustain and build relevance with consumers through new forms of communication. With the addition of Jon to our already talented team, I’m excited to see what we can accomplish together. He is not only an elite marketer and leader, but also incredibly passionate about great beer experiences.”

Although Sinden only officially joined Beerlicious Inc. this past week, he has been involved with the company for many years and is very familiar with the Beerlicious business.

Sinden also had this to say about his latest gig, “When I first attended Toronto’s Festival of Beer many years ago, I immediately knew it would be a massive success in this market.  I knew something special was happening and I wanted to be a part of it. I’ll draw on all my brand experience and the combined knowledge of the Beerlicious team, to help advance the Festival experience to new heights.”
