After nine years as wine and spirits buyer for Selfridges, Dawn Davies has announced her resignation and subsequent move to Speciality Drinks as head buyer.
Having successfully grown Selfridges Wine Shop, overseeing its move to bigger premises on the lower ground floor, Dawn will join Speciality Drinks from September.
The company, which provides the internet’s best selection of spirits and liqueurs to retail customers through The Whisky Exchange and on-trade clients through Speciality Drinks, has more than doubled in size in the last five years. With Dawn coming on board this will only further accelerate future expansion plans for the next few years.
Speaking of her decision, Davies says: “After having worked with Speciality Drinks for nine years I have become a massive admirer of everything that they do. I always said that, if I left Selfridges, the one company I could see myself working for would be them. I cannot wait to join the team and embark on my next adventure.”
