“We are continuously looking to increase our market share in London restaurants, and so are very pleased to have Nicolas coming onboard to further strengthen our London restaurant sales team. Not only is Nicolas a Master Sommelier, but he also has over 17 years of experience in the restaurant and wine trade and I believe his passion and expertise will be a great asset to Armit.”
