Regine Lee MW named Future 50 Awards winner
The WSET and IWSC have announced their Future 50 2019 and we're delighted that our Liberty Wines colleague Regine Lee MW is among the winners!
Created to commemorate the 50th anniversaries of both organisations this year, The Future 50 is a list of 50 wine, spirit and sake professionals under 40, from around the world and all areas of the trade, who represent the future influencers of the global drinks industry.
There were more than 600 nominations for the first round of judging by the panel of seven judges, supported by a further 27 industry experts from across the globe. The longlist was whittled down to 200, then to a shortlist of 82, before the final 50 winners were selected.
The judges commented:
"After moving into the wine trade from a career in management consulting, Regine knew that her motivation and business acumen would stand her in good stead in a new industry. As Head of Business Customer Support at Liberty Wines, Regine successfully delivered complex tasks such as the integration of Liberty’s operations departments with Sogrape UK’s in 2017. In 2015 she co-founded a networking group: Women in Wine London, to help connect women in the industry. Regine became a Master of Wine in 2018.”
Huge congratulations to Regine on her amazing and inspiring achievement!
