Simon Berry
Biography
Simon Berry joined his family firm, Berry Bros & Rudd, in 1977, and through sheer hard work, business acumen, astonishing vision and a tiny amount of nepotism became Chairman in January 2005. Previously he had been involved in the Marketing side of the company, trying to balance the heritage of a business founded in 1698 with the modern demands of the 21st century wine & spirits industry. He was responsible for the company's presence in Heathrow Airport, their expansion into Asia and - as early as 1994 - their venture into cyberspace with their multi-award winning website bbr.com.

It was known as the office and customers would come in to be greeted by one of the shop assistants and handed a price list.  No3 was never designed for retail, and that is why we’re all so thrilled to have this opportunity to open 63 Pall Mall..."
