With 15 years of experience in the drinks industry working across international brands including Red Bull, Russian Standard and Champagne Lanson, Carly’s expertise spans sales management, trade marketing and commercial and distribution solutions.

Most recently she has been using her unparalleled knowledge of the UK’s drinks market, and the trends that drive it, to aid commercial development for start-up and craft drinks brands such as Regal Rogue, Never Never Gin & Sekforde Botanical Mixers.


Due to her experience managing trade marketing for some of the country’s largest brands, she understands the importance of a holistic commercial strategy and a seamless relationship between marketing and sales for growing drinks brands, and enjoys working collaboratively with a range of drinks industry experts to achieve positive commercial outcomes.

Carly is a commercial demon and helped Regal Rogue sharpen its place in all markets, whilst adding some welcomed strategy that has added value to our long-term positioning. As a growing brand, I’d highly recommend having Carly on your team for a well versed second voice.

Carly has been a revelation. She combines a huge variety of skills that have been hard enough to find individually in people. Including, an in-depth knowledge of the UK drinks trade and a network of connections across every aspect combined with real strength in commercials and an understanding of the importance of brand and marketing. She has helped me understand and action what it takes to make a brand thrive in a complex and crowded market, giving me support and insight into the tools that give you the biggest chance of success. On top of this she is endlessly patient, creative, hardworking, and great fun to have on the team. I couldn't recommend her highly enough
