“On behalf of the CDIA Board, I would like to thank our President and CEO Francis Creighton for his years of service on behalf of CDIA and congratulate him as he prepares to take the helm of the Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America in November 2022. Throughout his tenure, Francis has helped maintain our industry’s strong focus on the consumers we serve and has steered CDIA and its members through countless challenges, including the COVID-19 pandemic.
