David Hesketh started working for Laurent-Perrier UK Ltd in May 1996 some five months after choosing to serve Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé at his mother’s 60th birthday. He became managing director in 1999 and says he was in the right place at the right time as the market once it had recovered from its post millennium dip grew year on year until 1998. Along with a daily glass of champagne, it has been the challenge of the market post financial recession that has kept him going. David also feels quite privileged as being associated with Laurent-Perrier introduces him to many fascinating people, places & experiences.
Simone Botti started his career in wine working as store manager for the beloved Oddbins after some time in hospitality. He made the jump to wholesale working for the family-run importer and distributor Moreno Wines. Some of his fellow Italians say “he sold his soul to the devil when he started working for the French!”. Simon is now very proud and loving being part of Laurent-Perrier, an industry leading family-owned business.
