Nick
Beck

Commercial Director

Nick was introduced to wine at a young age through his dad Roger, who has a great collection of wines and would often let him have a little glass with dinner. His first taste of working in the industry was on Covent Garden market selling wine to consumers, and following a stint working in media, Nick ran his own business selling wine online to consumers, at markets throughout London and the on trade. It was during a sales pitch to Borough Wines that he actually ended up getting offered a job, becoming their Sales Director specifically focused on growing the wholesale business. During this time he met Liam and when the opportunity arose to work with him a couple years later, he jumped at it. Nick now leads the sales for GWS focused on growing the customer base, selling more wine to various markets and developing sales plans and teams for the business.

Candice Veitch

On Trade Sales Manager

Candice joined the team year ago and brings with her 15 years of experience in food and hospitality, in both the on and off Trade. Her love for wine, and pretty much most alcoholic beverages, made it a no brainier to leave her regional role with Marks and Spencer and become part of something incredible and exciting within the wine industry. Living in the heart Bristol with her legendary coffee roaster husband, Candice has an uncompromising love for the forever changing food and wine scene. In fact, its here where you will find her mostly sipping on a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, eating something delicious from one of the extraordinary restaurants Bristol has to boast about.
