The two directors of the wine investment company Ransby Hoare Associates Ltd have been disqualified as directors. The company went into liquidation in December 2000 with estimated debts of 100,000. In April 2002 it was wound up by the DTI. The directors are Brigadier Geoffrey Paul Rymil-Ransby of Fovant, Salisbury and his son, Alexander William Guy Rymil-Ransby of Westhampnett, Chichester. The brigadier has been banned until 20 March 2012 and his son until 20 March 2014. Andrew Dunne was the general manager of the company, until he left to set up Liquid Acquisitions, which was also closed in the public interest by the DTI in January 2002. Ransby Hoare operated from The Lombard Business Centre in Wimbledon, before moving to a private address in East Dulwich, southeast London. Harpers understands that other directors of wine investment businesses closed by the DTI are also likely to face disqualification.
