Tom Burke has been appointed as a regional sales executive working in the Manchester area.

Burke joins the company from Laytons and Majestic, where he held sales roles focusing on contract caterers and independent bars.

Gerrard joins the company from Barwell & Jones where he was managing director for four years and previously sales director.

Prior to this, he held lead roles at PLB Group, HwCg and Jackson Estate.

The company said the new recruits signal a long-term commitment to growing the business and partnerships with customers.

Managing director, Andrew Bewes, said: "Our customers are rightly demanding ever increasing levels of service, professionalism, partnership and expertise from wine suppliers and these appointments, together with several more planned in London, the South and the North, demonstrate our commitment to our customers."
