Job Details:


Elenteny Imports is not your traditional alcoholic beverage importer and distributor. After spending years in the industry, our two founders combined their knowledge and experiences, creating (i) a company that offers the services they believed the industry needed and (ii) a vision of wanting to make a positive difference for small businesses. And you know what? That company and vision boomed.

Elenteny Imports is a multifaceted, services business for wine, spirits, and beer importation and distribution. We work with companies who find delicious alcoholic beverages (both foreign and domestic) they believe should be available throughout the United States. We provide logistics, compliance, and accounting back office support for those endeavors, and we deliver top-notch customer service at every step of the way.

As a company, we hold ourselves out as a dynamic, experienced service provider dedicated to delivering innovative logistics solutions while pursuing the highest degree of integrity and transparency for our clients and for each other. We expect each member to do the same.

Position Description

You will oversee the National Compliance Department, working closely with a small team to ensure the company adheres to state alcoholic beverage regulations. You will need to stay current on changes to alcohol beverage regulations that affect the company’s business and provide guidance to your team and other departments. You will be responsible for organizing and prioritizing the Department’s tasks while balancing various customers’ needs to make sure deadlines are met and customers are satisfied. You must become familiar with the company’s customers in order to maintain the “customer” pulse. You will maintain company bonds, licenses and permits and apply for new ones when necessary. Additionally, you will oversee projects involving the maintenance of company data. You should ensure your team members have a balanced workload, resolving issues they present in a timely fashion and helping to streamline email communications. You will be responsible for quick, accurate, and clear communication internally as well as externally, helping company members and customers navigate industry regulations and follow policies and procedures. You must be able to identify and draw lines in the sand, sometimes delivering disappointing messages. You will continuously review and improve existing company processes, ensuring efficiency and adherence to regulations, and you should implement new policies where necessary. You will troubleshoot issues arising from the Company’s various software systems, working with the Compliance Officer and company technology persons. You must be able to recognize, untangle, and anticipate issues and propose solutions, escalating more complex matters to the Compliance Officer. You will create Department objectives and track and report on key metrics.

Compliance demands high organization, meticulous attention to detail, constant data maintenance, excellent research skills, the ability to comprehend and apply state regulations, and efficiency. Additionally, every position here requires good judgment and a willingness to act as a professional liaison who exudes customer service. Everyone, including our fellow coworkers and surrounding neighbors, deserves our customer service oriented attitudes.
