Area Sales Manager – The North
Having spent many years "Front of house" in the hospitality
industry, it was during her time working for Burgundian born chef,
Jacques Reymond, in Melbourne that Emma's passion for wine really
started to unfold. Each night after service the team would
sit down and literally "Drink the dregs" from each decanter… It was
a 1960 red burgundy that won her heart and then broke her parents'
when she moved to the UK… and that was 14 years ago!
Having first worked for a couple of restaurant chains to pay the
rent, Emma landed her dream job to support a sales team at one of
the world's leaders in luxury goods (not bad for a young Aussie
fresh off the boat, so to speak…) and from there she worked in a
series of sales jobs with reputable distributers.
Emma has had her eye on Alliance for some time and so when
seeing the role she jumped at the opportunity. Knowing the
portfolio and the team well (her fellow Aussie husband was already
a longstanding customer of Alliance's) she knew that she found the
perfect match (after her husband of course…).
Emma is the other token Aussie at Alliance, and runs around the
north after both sales and two small boys, Harry and Hugo.
