TOM SURGEY

Tom joined Ridgeview in 2014, fresh out of the London hospitality trade. Since then, he has worked his way up to running our sales team. Tom’s key focus is on developing and maintaining our trade relationships and our overall sales strategy. His team doubled in size in 2017 from a team of one to a team of two with Brandon joining him. Tom is hugely passionate about wine and the hospitality industry. He prides himself on building genuine, mutually supportive relationships with the bars, restaurants and distributors that serve our wines throughout the UK and internationally. Tom’s previous role was at The Club at The Ivy in London’s Covent Garden and he has worked in the trade in one form or another since leaving education.

Tom isn’t naturally one to slow down… In addition to Ridgeview, he communicates about wine at events and in the media. In his free time, he prioritises his family life with wife Olivia and beautiful baby Bea. You’ll often find them in a Lewes pub or up The Downs.
