Martin Glenn, Chairman designate, commented:

“I'm thrilled to be joining Chapel Down as Chairman. Thanks to the pioneering work of Chapel Down, English Sparkling Wine is no longer regarded as a novelty and has now become mainstream. The Company has ambition to accelerate growth and I believe that my commercial experience can be of assistance to Frazer and the team as they develop their business plan for the coming years. A full induction is being planned and I look forward to learning from John who has helped lead Chapel Down since 2014.”

The whole team are looking forward to welcoming Martin and know that he has the skills to help us build the Chapel Down business to new heights. We are all thrilled to be working with him.

John has been a fantastic Chairman for the business. Not only is he a great mentor with extensive drinks experience, but a man of great candour, intelligence and integrity. He leaves the business after six years in much improved shape. John will remain a close friend and supporter of the business and will help Martin into the role.”
