David Cox, Chief Executive of The Benevolent, was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Drinks Business during the London Wine Fair.
The award recognises David’s long and diverse career in the UK drinks industry, from Brand Development to Export Sales Management, along with other challenging tasks, such as running drinks-related associations in different fields.
In 1985 he became export director for the UK’s largest wholesale business, Matthew Clark. Since leaving that company in 1995, David has established the Brown Forman wine business in Europe – an impressive feat for a company famous for selling Tennessee whiskey – before taking up a position to be the face of New Zealand wines in this country, and then, in 2013, the charismatic and passionate Chief Executive of The Benevolent.
Congratulations David on this well deserved Award!
