Liberty Wines strengthens its senior management team
After a successful 2020, Liberty Wines has strengthened its senior management team, promoting sales director Tom Platt to the newly created position of deputy managing director, effective 1 April 2021.
Managing director David Gleave explains the rationale behind these changes. “When we entered lockdown in March 2020, we were convinced we’d have our worst year ever; as it turns out, we’ve had one of our best years since we started in 1997. This is because of the way the team worked so well together. We’re aiming to build upon this work to create a stronger platform for future growth.”
Gleave says of Tom Platt: “Tom has been at Liberty Wines for over 12 years. He started as an assistant in National Accounts and has progressed through the company, taking each new challenge in his stride. The vitality he has brought to his current role, and the support he has provided to me over the past year, have been nothing short of remarkable. I know he’ll bring the same dynamism to this newly created role, which in turn will ensure we are an even stronger company than we were 12 months ago. He will take responsibility for certain aspects of my role which allows me to focus on customer service and portfolio development, two areas that underpin what Liberty Wines is all about.”
