J&B appoints new HK head of sales

Fine wine merchant Justerini & Brooks has appointed Cellina Chan as its new head of sales in Hong Kong.

Taking effect on 29 September, Chan will be responsible for the running of J&B’s Hong Kong office, managing the strategy and team and the merchant’s portfolio of 3,500 wines.

Today, J&B’s Asian business accounts for 40% of the merchant’s turnover and Chan will also be responsible for growing the private and trade client base.

Chan said “Justerini & Brooks is the definitive fine wine merchant – an outstanding portfolio, impeccable provenance, highest quality storage and close relationships with both producers and customers.

“I am proud to be given the opportunity to lead the business in Hong Kong, and look forward to developing both reputation and reach across Asia.”

She will work closely with the UK managing director, Chadwick Delaney, who commented: “Cellina understands the Justerini & Brooks culture and collector perfectly and we very much look forward to her joining our team.

“Her excellent knowledge of fine wine and well-established reputation in Hong Kong will be invaluable as we go from strength to strength in the region.”

J&B is the second major merchant in Hong Kong to announce a new head of sales, with Corney & Barrow naming Thibaut Mathieu as its new managing director earlier this month.
