Simpsons’ Wine Estate is delighted to announce the appointment of Ashleigh Keech, as their new Sales and Events Executive.
Ashleigh is 26 and inspired by all things food and drink! Using her original training as a chef, Ashleigh has travelled extensively gaining valuable experience at several exclusive restaurants. She then became a young entrepreneur running her own small Catering business for two years. At that stage she decided to make her hobby her living – wine and started working for Majestic Wine in 2013. At Majestic, Ashleigh became the fastest person in the company to reach the position of Store Manager and completed her WSET level 3 certificate with Merit. She established herself as an influential team member, focusing her efforts on providing the best possible customer service.
Ashleigh has now decided to move on and become a key part of Charles & Ruth Simpsons’ unique and exciting wine business. Based in Canterbury, she will oversee sales to the on-trade of wines from their southern French Estate, Domaine Sainte Rose and be integral to planning events for trade, press and the public for Simpsons Wine Estate in the North Downs of Kent.
Ruth and Charles Simpson are quoted as saying:
We are very much looking forward to working with Ashleigh. Her dynamic attitude, love of wine and enthusiasm and commitment to the wine industry is inspirational and we know that she will be a huge asset to our team.
