New York City, September 13th -- The National Association of Beverage Importers has selected Robert (Rob) Tobaissen as its new president. Rob succeeds Bill Earle who has served almost a dozen years as the organization’s chief executive.

Rob is a former Chief Counsel for the Treasury Department’s Alcohol, Tobacco Tax and Trade Administration. While at TTB he was the principal legal advisor to senior executives and Treasury Department officials. He managed legal interpretations, regulations and administrative rulings, legislation (including amendments to the Internal Revenue Code) and Congressional testimony. Rob is an expert at evaluating enforcement actions under the Internal Revenue Code, Federal Alcohol Administration Act, and other Federal laws relating to alcohol and tobacco products and excise taxes.

NABI chairman Justin Kissinger said that, “We are extremely pleased that Rob will be leading the Association. He brings a wealth of knowledge and practical experience to our community of importers. He has continued to stay active following his retirement from TTB gaining valuable insights in the private sector”

Rob will succeed Bill Earle on October 1, 2018. Bill has agreed to remain available to Rob to facilitate a smooth transition. Chairman Kissinger commented that, “No one will be able to replace Bill, but we are pleased to have found a worthy successor. He is leaving to join his wife, Diane, in tending to a gaggle of nine grandchildren from their home near Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. We will miss his accessible and creative style.”


The National Association of Beverage Importers (NABI) is the trade association representing US based importers of beer, wine and distilled spirits. For over 83 years NABI has represented the interests of the beverage alcohol import community in assuring access to the US market and alerting the import community to changes in the regulatory environment. NABI has been active in harmonizing the practices and procedures of international suppliers with the requirements for trade at the federal and state level in the American market. NABI’s wine and beer members represent some of the highest volume and value importers in the US. Information about NABI can be found at

NABI is a little boring. You ought to peek at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create
news titles to get people to open the links. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get readers excited
about what you've got to say. In my opinion, it might make your posts
a little livelier.
