Chris Seale

Managing Director

Chris keeps his steady hand on the tiller as he steers Speciality Brands on its path of growth.

Having spent over 20 years in commercial and marketing roles in large international businesses, Chris founded Speciality Brands with Raj and Sukhinder Singh, after becoming frustrated with big company politics and followed his desire to get closer to his products and customers. Having spent 10 years with Pernod Ricard, Chris has very strong experience with the UK on and off trade both in the wine and spirits sectors. His last role at Pernod Ricard saw him promoted to Head of Champagne and Cognac during which period he launched Martell XO and Cuvee R Lalou from G.H. Mumm.

Proud father to toddler Hayden, Chris is also a keen sportsman, and when he is not watching or talking about Welsh rugby if he is allowed, you will find him in one of London's many cocktail bars or restaurants enjoying a Negroni or glass of Chablis.
