At Work – Business Development Manager
Charles is responsible for key account management for both PFE and subsidiary company, Juice Live Communications. He brings with him years of experience in operations and sales management, as well as in business training, gained predominantly in the licensed and restaurant trade.
Indeed, Charles began his career with Bass, working in free trade sales, then pub and restaurant operations before taking charge of the company’s training school and heading up a customer service programme for the entire business.
Following a spell with Youngs in their hotel and catering division, Charles then spent ten years pioneering city and town centre style bars, including brands such as Slug & Lettuce, before becoming a self employed consultant, an entertainer with wine and joining PFE.
Charles is our longest standing employee and one of our resident wine show hosts!
Bringing `work´ home with him, Charles never says no to a fine glass of New Zealand Sauvignon in the garden. He has three children to keep him busy at home but still finds time for the occasional game of golf, tennis or hockey (mainly to keep the pounds off these days!!)
