Wine Spectator: Straight Talk With Southern Glazer’s Terry ArnoldSeptember 2, 2020
Terry Arnold probably didn’t realize it when he joined the U.S. Army straight out of college, but his greatest weapon throughout life has been his people skills. During nine years as an officer, then 16 years climbing the corporate ladder at companies like General Electric and Southern Glazer’s Wine and Spirits, the nation’s largest wine distributor, Arnold has created a culture where people can work together for big goals. In a recent episode of Straight Talk with Wine Spectator, Arnold spoke with executive editor Thomas Matthews about embracing corporate culture at GE, encouraging diversity and inclusion at Southern Glazer’s, and the latter company’s partnership with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.
