I joined Corney & Barrow in 1994, having previously worked for an auction house and a broker in the UK and USA. The then relatively new “Broking Department” was growing fast and would go on to win The Queens Award For Export on two occasions.
Today I oversee the broking element of the Fine Wine Team, where we help and advise customers who wish to sell their wines through our broking service, ranging from individuals, through to restaurants, hotels and companies. I am also responsible for Bordeaux En Primeur buying and our relationships with the Bordeaux negociants.
Having previously sailed across oceans and leapt out of aeroplanes, my leisure activities are now more centred around cooking and socialising with family and friends - obviously with a good bottle or two.
My first visit to Bordeaux was back when there were only textbooks and all I knew about the region and its locations finally became real. My life long interest in the region was cemented.
