A New Recruit with a Stellar Background
Today Slurp.co.uk announced the hiring of Victoria Daskal as a senior sales executive in its Retail Sales group. The recruitment of Victoria marks a major triumph for Slurp.co.uk. Originally from Boston, USA, Victoria has an amazing background in wine. She started by gaining an MSc in International Wine Management (during which she travelled through no less than 45 wine regions and 22 countries around the world). She came to London to do an internship with Jancis Robinson, and continues to work with Jancis on wine projects like the development of wine and food matching software for Nintendo DS. She writes freelance for Decanter Magazine. Keenly interested and involved in wine education, Victoria is one of the course tutors at the London Wine Academy.
With a background like hers, Victoria was clearly able to take her pick of Wine Advisor positions. That is why Slurp.co.uk was so delighted that she decided to leave Laithwaites to join the fast-growing and dynamic online company. Dr Jeremy Howard, Slurp Executive Chairman, welcomed Victoria to the Slurp family:
“Since forming the hand selling Retail Sales group earlier this year our customers have benefited significantly from a team of wine experts at the end of the phone to navigate through our 7,000 products. We now have five full-time advisors and we fully anticipate that Victoria will make a major contribution helping our customers get the most out of our enormous range of quality wines, beers and spirits.”
