Matt Dunlop

While the liquor industry was not in my initial career plans, it is an industry that I have become hugely passionate about. My initial career was in Radio, before Lion Breweries gave me the opportunity to start my sales career in Christchurch. This fostered my passion for the industry and over the better half of two decades it has given me opportunities as a Rep, a Sales Manager, a Promotions Manager of a retail chain and currently a National Account Manager - Retail.

I have been fortunate to work in an industry that brings people together. I have meet amazing people who have challenged me to grow professionally and personally. The biggest learnings have always come from the customers who sell my brands to the consumer. This is the area of the industry I enjoy the most. Partnering with retailers and retail groups to grow brands that benefit both parties.

Outside of work you will find me with my wife (who I meet in the industry) on the side-lines of our boy’s sport or on the front deck hosting friends over a selection of EuroVintage’s finest drops.
