United Kingdom, Europe
Native from Burgundy, I have decided to give my career a new orientation in 2002 and to do the best I could to be happy and successful. As the only thing I could think about and had a strong interest was wine, I set myself the objective to do whatever it took to succeed. I enrolled on a professional program at the winegrowing school in Beaune and set myself the goal to live France and to establish myself in London considering the importance of the wine market and to work for a leading wine merchant.
The experience I had accumulated working in vineyards and cellars whilst I was student helped me a lot and following a successful internship at Nicolas UK Ltd, a shop manager position was offered to me. In July 2003, I took over the branch in Blackheath, and started to prove myself with already the clear idea to join Berry Bros & Rudd and passed in the meantime my Advanced Certificate at the WSET.
Since February 2005 I have been working for Berry Bros & Rudd and I must say that all the hard work has paid off as in 2007 I was promoted to Senior Sales Executive and in July 2011 I was promoted London shop Manager of the historic premises at 3 St James’s Street.
The last ten years have gone so fast but I am also glad that during this time I have been able to make my initial goal a reality and I have enjoyed every single minute, day working and living in London, not only this experience has considerably reinforced my skills, knowledge and cemented a strong experience but on the private side I have also improved a lot as a person.
I have no regret, I would like just from now on to see where the next ten years will take me to.
