BeBevCo Euro-Asia has been in discussions to add the best of the best to their European team over the last few months. Today, the company announces new members of the Board of Directors and Regional Managers for BeBevCo European Operations; Alexander Khomenko, the former manager of Red Bull GMBH, and Serkan Barutcu, the former Director of Operations for Monster Energy Beverage.
Alexander Khomenko developed and implemented the national business strategy for Kazakhstan for Red Bull GMBH, as he managed legal issues and established relationships with local authorities. Responsible for strategic business, marketing and sales channel planning throughout the country, Mr. Khomenko oversaw and managed budgets, distribution partners, analyses research and market data managing 50 personnel in his business unit. Previous to Kazakhstan, Khomenko was the local director for Red Bull in Russia from 2005- 2010.
Serkan Barutcu has been successful with both Red Bull and Monster Energy prior to joining BeBevCo Euro-Asia. He was Operations Director for Monster Energy Beverage Corporation since mid-2011. From 2008 to mid-2011, Mr. Barutcu was with Red Bull based in Hong Kong overseeing the territories of Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and South Korea. From 2005 to 2008, Mr. Barutcu was the On-Premise Director for Red Bull for Turkey, Russia, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Belarus, Latvia and Lithuania where he was instrumental in building Red Bull to a 65% market share in Turkey with market penetration into 31,000 accounts, the fastest growth rate of any Red Bull launch in any country.
Brian Weber, CEO of BeBevCo said, "Alex has been instrumental for years developing Red Bull in Russia and the surrounding countries. He recently left Red Bull to join the relaxation revolution and bring the KOMA Unwind brand to that part of the world. We are equally pleased to have Mr. Barutcu on board. He was the original distributor for Red Bull in Turkey and later became a major force in expanding Red Bull in multiple parts of the world.
