It is and always has been a great pleasure to work with Mallory McElligot since her days at Plumpjack managing our DTC outreach initiative with Chatterbox Wine Marketing. When she started BANG, many of us in the DTC community had experience with networking groups that came and went and never really had a mission or could bring value other that networking and having fun get togethers. Mallory changed all of that with a singular focus on encouraging likeminded professionals to share their knowledge, contacts and referrals for the greater good of all DTC channels in Napa Valley. When Mallory decided to enhance BANG’s services converting to a subscription basis, I was an eager and early adopter. During Covid it became even more clear what a great resource BANG has become to our industry. Thank you, Mallory, for all your efforts in bringing our community together in spirit and with a purpose.
