“It’s a humbling feeling to have been selected for this program and to be seen as a future leader at Brown-Forman,” said Booth.

The leadership program gave Booth the opportunity to do extensive networking with high-ranking leaders in the company.

“Throughout the process, I learned a great deal about my leadership style and career outlook. I also had the chance to connect with key Brown-Forman senior leaders in an effort to grow my network within the company.”

Booth said that he plans to use his success and newfound knowledge to mentor others.

“I hope to continue my development at the company and use my experience to help those that I am blessed to mentor.”
