Testimonials

"Harry joined the Savyll Beverage Co. team two months ago and immediately applied structure and focus to our sales strategy. Within a couple of weeks, Harry was able to tap into his deep F&B network to open up relationships with key buyers and secure listings - something that typically took us 6+ months to unlock. Harry has provided our team with invaluable insight on the mode of operations within the drinks industry, both on-trade and off-trade, and applies an entrepreneurial-lens to all listing and brand- building opportunities. Compared to other sales agencies we’ve worked with in the past, Harry has been keen, fully-engaged, delivered effective results in a short period of time, and most importantly, has genuinely been a pleasure to work with."

"We were all hugely impressed with the attitude you came into the office with on day 1, and of course maintained throughout. A fantastic work ethic and remarkable focus in the office. It really seemed like you were very aware of the investment in you we had made and thus of course that we would rely on you to deliver. That recognition was appreciated"

image

"Harry joined our team as we were preparing for our first national supermarket listing with Sainsbury’s. His advice and experience have proved invaluable during the set-up process and post launch as we work to support the listing. He has quickly embedded himself as a key member of the team and has increased his scope to support us across our wider grocery & wholesale strategies"

image

"Harry’s been working with us at Holy Moly for the past 6 weeks, helping us grow our out-of-home business. He’s brought fantastic energy and enthusiasm, despite the difficult market conditions. His knowledge and experience has been really valuable, and he’s been delivering tangible results in just a few weeks of working with us"

image

"Harry brings clear strategic thinking allied to his own considerable commercial experience. You never feel you are working with a consultant, it feels like you would get the same advise if it was his own brand. Retail is a highly competitive market and Harry’s experience and insight is invaluable."
