CEO, Wein & Co, Austria
Wein & Co is a leading fine wine retailer in Austria, with 21 wine shops and seven wine bars. The brand was founded in 1993 by Heinz Kammerer and subsequently purchased by the German Hawesko retail group in 2018. I accepted a position as the brand’s CEO in January 2020, after working for the Austrian Wine Marketing Board for 13 years. It has been something of a baptism of fire, selling wine in a global pandemic.
