added new members Sam Haddon and Adam Keeligan to
its London based agency.
The Spirit Cartel has just added two new members to
its gang, a tight knit bunch of hoods hell-bent on
importing, flogging and drinking the best spirits
from around the world.
Sam Haddon joins the gang as Account Manager,

the on-trade, spanning over several years, managing

working across the spectrum and my contacts in the
trade will prove vital in growing the brands and the
wide portfolio. Iím really looking forward to taking
on the challenge."

plans for the brand, Adam Keeligan will head up the
North and West of England as Account Manager.
