Simon Thorpe MW and Wine GB CEO on Wine Talks British Business

Simon has more than 30 years’ experience in different commercial sectors of the wine industry, including senior roles with Waitrose, Constellation, Negociants and Fells. He has been a board member of both the Institute of Masters of Wine and the WSET, and continues to work with both organisations. Passionate about the British wine industry, he took over the role as CEO of WineGB in October 2020 and was appointed to the Board on 13th April 2021.

Simon lives in the beautiful county of Shropshire, and spends his spare time with his wife Louise and three sons, walking the dogs, weeding the garden, exploring the rough of various golf courses, and coming to terms with the gradual fall from power (and possible renaissance) of his beloved Arsenal.
