A to Z Wineworks worked with Kelly at Northwest Core Collection for all aspects of wholesale compliance for multiple brands. We have since contracted with her independently. She is thoughtful, analytical, proactive and extremely organized. We appreciate Kelly’s attention to detail and would recommend her services.

Kelly gets the job/project done on time and with accuracy. I've never had to worry about her work, the quality of it, or her meeting a deadline. Whether we are talking about being properly licensed or having a wine correctly and currently registered for selling or the monthly reporting, she takes the world of compliance, which scares so many of us, and makes it look easy. In the end for me, it is about selling and you can’t do that if you are not compliant. From my view, Kelly, a compliance expert, is a much better alternative to keeping compliance in-house.

Ms. Manning’s specific skills in creating our compliance division were instrumental in our ability to legally open additional sales channels. Her ideas and unique perspective were invaluable to the rapid growth of Signature Wines.  Ms. Manning is trustworthy, dependable and highly organized. Based on my discussions with various wine industry executives, she is well respected in the industry for her compliance expertise and excellent customer service.  I would highly recommend her without reservation.

Kelly has provided education and guidance beyond the monthly shipment reporting she does for us that has allowed me to navigate through the compliance maze.  I foresee her contributions growing, as the regulatory landscape becomes more complex.

Kelly Manning provided all of our compliance needs in-house for a number of years, updating changes and providing new item information for all Trumer Pils, Shiner and BridgePort brewery products.  Her professionalism, diligence and organization allowed timely submissions and assured that my staff and I could focus solely on the uninterrupted sales and marketing of our products.  Kelly’s work was flawless and her entrepreneurial attitude guaranteed exemplary results.

Kelly was always a pleasure to work with, for many reasons.  She is detail oriented and managed large data loads, was very familiar with the legal aspects related to our business, and our distributors were always able to rely on her, especially regarding price posting.  She was always professional, friendly and maintained a good attitude, and although she had a unique position that required responsibility over a broad variety of requests across several departments, she very ably handled all the duties required of her and kept all her clients and managers happy.  Kelly is extremely dependable, dedicated and customer service oriented. I highly recommend her.
