joined our sales team in January 2010. The Anglo-German with Scottish roots and a British sense of humour discovered his love for wine 25 years ago on the Ahr, where he also did an apprenticeship as a wine maker and later on added a management trainee to his qualifications. Due to his long international experience as sales and export manager in various wine trading companies and wineries (spending his last 10 years in Franconia) he is a reliable consultant for trade and gastronomy customers worldwide. His spare time he spends – not always in this succession – renovating his "project house", taming his dog – and wife. He enjoys quiet moments relaxing with a good glass of wine and sometimes the odd Single Malt Whisky.
