Numerous French holidays visiting wine regions eventually paid off as Simon inherited his parent’s interest in the world of wine and Champagne. He spent time studying and working in France as part of a university degree and joined MMD shortly after graduating in French and Business. He is now responsible for sales within London and the South East, with a particular focus on luxury retail, alongside independent merchants and the prestige on-trade. Outside of work Simon enjoys life in rural Sussex with his wife and two daughters. He is a keen cook, film lover and likes to visit the South of France whenever the opportunity arises.
