The Representative Team
Rowan Vincent – State Manager (Perth and South West sales)
Rowan brings a wealth of experience to our sales team. Appointed in early 2012 as our State Manager, Rowan flaunts a life time of sales, hospitality and management knowledge to our young and dynamic crew. His passion and enthusiasm for the industry is contagious and he isn’t afraid to share the wins. The on and off premise trade north of the river can definitely vouch for this. Having worked with beer, spirits, RTD’s, wine from a box to the more premium stuff he has learnt not to discriminate against any wine or “flavour”… but after a day of putting up with two female reps he’s just hankering for a cleansing ale at the Lancelin Beach Hotel.
Ayesha Michael- Perth sales
Ayesha joined the Estate Wine Shippers sales team in 2011 with 4 years of liquor industry experience. Servicing mostly south of the river she is responsible for the management of accounts in the on and off premise trade. Ayesh first found her love of wine when she ordered a glass of Cabernet while dinning with friends. When it arrived she exclaimed “Oh…. I didn’t realise Cabernet was a red wine” and immediately enrolled into a wine course to save this embarrassing moment from ever happening again. These days if she isn’t found sipping Champagne or Chardonnay she can be found out running with her Jack Russell Indy, boxing or painting. Ayesha is our little Petit Verdot- quiet and friendly but exceptionally loyal and holds the team together.
Gareth Duncalf – Perth and Mandurah sales
Gareth is the newest member of our sales team, joining Estate Wine Shippers with a wealth of knowledge and experience. He was employed as a Territory Manager within the FMCG for 3 years. He then moved into the wine industry where he has 9 years experience, working as an Account Manager, Area Manager and Sales Manager for Fine and Imported Wines for both the on and off premise trade. Gareth has a keen interest in rugby and instructs martial arts in his spare time.
