LONDON, August 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
AWC has announced the appointment of Stuart Young as Sales Director to spearhead and grow its international team of fine and rare wine advisors. Stuart will head AWC's team of seven in its London office along with its global affiliates in Asia and the US.
Stuart started his career in technology and, following a brief interlude working in the US, took a role with Laithwaites, working initially in its call centre. Despite no prior experience of the wine trade Stuart developed a revolutionary upselling initiative, and as a result of his team development success began writing and delivering sales training programmes across Laithwaites and its parent company, Direct Wines.
Spotting an opportunity to fuse his sales and training experience, Stuart launched Provenance Recruitment, head hunting staff for companies including Pernod Ricard, Bibendum, Enotria and Pol Roger, but a meeting with AWC Managing Director, Stephen Williams, convinced him to return to his sales routes.
At AWC, Stuart is responsible for doubling the sales team over the next 12 months as it keeps demand with an expanding international client base. He will also take on staff development, ensuring that its growing team is supported through financial, commercial and logistical training.
Speaking about his appointment, Stuart comments, "AWC is a company with big ambitions and an entrepreneurial spirit, which provides its team with exceptional opportunities rarely seen within the wine world. It is an exciting time to join as AWC continues to expand into new global markets."
AWC is a luxury wine and spirits company that was originally established more than 25 years ago by current CEO Stephen Williams. From its headquarters in London and its two sales offices in Asia, AWC supplies fine wine to private individuals, hotels, restaurants, and the global wine trade.
While maintaining a passion for antique vintages, the company's product range is principally composed of contemporary vintages which are capable of becoming the antiques of the future. Irrespective of vintage, the company only trades in exceptionally fine wine.
Internationally recognised as experts in the fine wine industry, AWC's exclusive stocks and services are highly sought-after. The company routinely manages, provides advice on and actively supports wine cellars that are held in châteaux, palaces, grand hotels and exclusive, private residences worldwide.
In 2013 AWC's trading entities were amalgamated to form AWC Global PLC; a UK Public Limited Company, which is currently engaged in a multi-year programme of expansion into traditional and emerging fine wine markets around the globe.
As a company, AWC is uniquely positioned amongst international wine merchants due to its long-standing sourcing and customer relationships, its strong brand image, the impressive physical premises of its global headquarters in London, its substantial stock holdings, and its robust IT and operational infrastructure.
