Off Piste appoints new chairman

07 April, 2010

Off trade wine supplier Off Piste has appointed a new chairman. Jerry Lockspeiser, who founded Bottle Green in 1990, is to help guide the business’s strategic development.

Lockspeiser said: “Off Piste today reminds me in many ways of my previous business in the early years of its growth – with the added benefit of having two of the UK’s best wine business operators at the helm. Anthony Fairbank and Paul Letheren just get it – and do it. They have bucket loads of drive and energy, and just love working with their customers to make things happen. I will add some bigger picture and long term thinking to the mix – so that we capture and channel the creativity to develop the business for many years to come. I boot strap built my previous business, warts and all, and learnt many lessons.  I plan to use this experience to help Off Piste grow healthily and avoid too many pitfalls. It should be fun.”
