Sainsbury's McEvoy moves to Thresher

Published:  23 July, 2008

Sainsbury's wine buyer Helen McEvoy is leaving on
17 November to join Threshers as senior wine buyer.

McEvoy, who looked after Spain, Portugal, organics, Austria, Kosher and most recently South America,

joined the multiple retailer's trading graduate scheme in September 2004.

She started in the wine department and became the German wine buyer in January 2005.

McEvoy said: I have had some fantastic experiences and learned a great deal during my time at Sainsbury's. I have seen the company turn itself around, bringing an extra

1.5 million customers into store over the past year.

I feel very privileged to have worked in an award-winning wine team and I wish the Sainsbury's wine-buying team

a successful future.'

The remaining members of the Sainsbury's team are:

Julian Dyer (Australia and New Zealand)

Melissa Draycott (Champagne and sparkling, fortified wines and South Africa)

Abigail Hirschfeld (France

and US)

Michelle Smith (Italy, Eastern Europe, England, bag-in-box and small sizes).
