Katie Woodson

On-premise Sales Representative

You could say the bev alc industry is in Katie Woodson’s DNA. Her father, Ed Friedland (known by many), has been in the biz for decades, with Origlio for 16 years. Woodson joined Origlio as an Account Specialist and then took a job as a sales rep in Center City, representing Origlio’s craft portfolio. Woodson is now an on-premise sales rep, servicing southeastern Montgomery County and a small part of Bucks County. Woodson’s favorite part of her job is the relationships she forms with her customers. “At each of my accounts, there are lots of people to get to know – owners, managers, bartenders etc., so there are many opportunities within one sales call to make a good impression.”

To be a top-notch on-premise sales rep you must have… An extensive knowledge of the portfolio, situational awareness and a big, bold personality.

The advice you would give a new sales rep is… Don’t be afraid to close the deal. The person you’re talking to knows you’re a sales rep! Ask for the sale!

What do you like to do when you’re not working? I enjoy spending time with my family and reading mystery novels.

If you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be, past or present? My first would be Oprah, so I could become a better talk show host! Then, I’d like to interview my late mother one more time, and of course, Taylor Swift.

What are three things on your bucket list? I’d like to travel to Scotland, Hawaii and Greece.

Do you have any favorite summer activities? I enjoy the beach in Wildwood Crest and tubing on the Delaware River near Bushkill, PA.

The last TV show you binged was… Girls5eva season 3.

Your favorite movie of all time is… The Other Guys.

The best advice you’ve ever received was… Don’t sweat the small stuff. I’m still working on that.

What’s your biggest pet peeve? There’s nothing worse than a paper cut!

If you could be anywhere, drinking any alcoholic beverage… I’d be floating down the river with my mom, drinking a Firestone Walker Union Jack IPA.
