I enjoyed and benefited hugely from a highly progressive and successful corporate career spanning 15 years across multiple fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) categories before starting my consulting career in 2010.
I started out on the bottom rung of the sales ladder at the largest wine company in the world, Ernest & Julio Gallo, being promoted quickly through the ranks to be the company’s youngest ever leader of their largest global customer.
From there I was headhunted back-to-back into a number of exciting companies to lead and develop key commercial relationships with UK and international supermarkets whilst developing up-coming talent in the FMCG market.
Roles that I performed during my permanent career include:
- Sales Executive
- Operations Manager
- National Account Manager
- Business Manager
- Channel Controller
- Sales Director
- General Manager
I have always had a passion for doing business and developing people, which was core to my decision to set up my own consulting business, 12th Man, in 2010.
