Robert Oatley brings Katie MacAulay to the UK to 'develop market’

Published:  11 March, 2019

Robert Oatley Vineyards has brought its business development manager Katie MacAulay to the UK as part of a strategy to strengthen its position in the UK market.

As part of her UK-based position, MacAulay will be supporting distributor Hatch Mansfield while developing Robert Oatley Vineyards in the market.

Scottish-born MacAulay has over three decades of experience in the wine trade, having worked at Oddbins as head of communications, Bibendum as fine wine buyer and director of buying before joining Enotria as marketing and buying director.

Based in the Adelaide Hills in Australia from 2004-2018, she was initially business development manager UK for a premium group of wineries including Petaluma, St Hallett and Wither Hills, before joining Robert Oatley in 2012 in the same capacity.

Hatch Mansfields said: “We’re delighted to welcome Katie back to the UK once more, where we can readily draw on both her enormous experience in this market and her knowledge and enthusiasm for the Robert Oatley portfolio,” said marketing brand controller Fiona Mottershaw.

Hatch Mansfield has worked as the exclusive UK agent for Robert Oatley Vineyards since 2016.
