“Justin has the ability to combine great enthusiasm and technical ability with strong analytical skills on consumer insight whilst all the time knowing that these have to be underpinned by a strong commercial instinct.”

Mark Williamson, Commercial Director – Waitrose Ltd

“Justin represents real wine, with real meaning, produced by real people from a real place – a rare commodity in the wine trade nowadays
I enjoyed working with Justin for the UK’s leading supermarket during which he spearheaded the greatest market-growth of any UK supermarket, in recent memory.
The difference with Justin is he puts the wine buying decision in the hands of the consumer, focussing on the long-term consumer engagement and enjoyment rather than a superficial short-term win.
He is a slightly zany, slightly unusual person but one of the most genuine wine trade individuals on the planet. Tap in to his brain and wealth of experience if you want to change your business model, rather than just ‘optimise’ what you are already doing.
Producer, buyer, both bricks and clicks retailer, blogger, professional taster; Justin has a lot of bases covered.
If you’re employing a consultant and looking for a breath of fresh air, a new vision and aren’t afraid to have convention challenged, then look no further.”

Andrew Shaw, Head of Buying, Bibendum
