WLBL Bids Farewell to Se­bas­tian Sanchez, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor

The Star (St. Lucia) - - BUSINESS -

Wind­ward and Lee­ward Brew­ery Lim­ited (WLBL), leader in the bev­er­age in­dus­try, bid farewell to its Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Se­bas­tian Sanchez this week. Se­bas­tian, who has been at the helm of the or­gan­i­sa­tion since 2014, leaves be­hind a great legacy at WLBL.

“Dur­ing his time at WLBL, Se­bas­tian was able to lead the or­gan­i­sa­tion with passion, drive and en­ergy and en­abled the com­pany to reach its am­bi­tion two years be­fore the pro­jected date of 2018. He was able to mo­ti­vate staff to con­tinue pro­duc­tion in dif­fi­cult times and even worked with the team on new prod­uct in­no­va­tions such as Su­perMalt and lo­cal pro­duc­tion of Am­s­tel and Des­per­a­dos. One of the ma­jor ini­tia­tives he will be re­mem­bered for dur­ing his time here is lead­ing the bold move with the merger of WLBL and DBC, which has poised WLBL to be­come the leader in the to­tal bev­er­age mar­ket,” stated Lisle Chase, Chair­man of the Board.

Se­bas­tian per­son­i­fied the com­pany’s long-stand­ing val­ues of ‘Passion for Qual­ity, Re­spect for Peo­ple and Planet, and En­joy­ment of Life’.

In a brief in­ter­view the out­go­ing Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor stated: “My fam­ily and I have en­joyed our time in Saint Lu­cia. We have met some won­der­ful peo­ple who we will be sad to leave be­hind. My time at WLBL was ex­tremely spe­cial as I got to meet and work with ded­i­cated em­ploy­ees who un­der­stand the di­rec­tion of the busi­ness and have stood with the man­age­ment team to reach and ex­ceed our am­bi­tion. We have set an­other high am­bi­tion and even though I will not be there with them, I have no doubt that they will achieve and sur­pass it.”

Se­bas­tian will be stay­ing with the Heineken Com­pany, and WLBL has ex­tended its best wishes to him on his new jour­ney.
