Buckingham Schenk is pleased to announce the appointment of John Ruck-Keene as off trade account manager.


This appointment follows a recent review of Buckingham Schenk’s Sales department spearheaded by sales director Andy Rawlinson.

John joins from Liberty Wines where he was national account manager with particular focus on developing new business with established and emerging accounts. Prior to this, John worked for Enotria & Coe as national account manager and also held a variety of roles during a 9 year period at Majestic.

John joins the off trade team and will report into national off trade manager, Alison Wray.

On his recent appointment, John Ruck-Keene comments: ‘I am very pleased to be given the opportunity to join Buckingham Schenk. This is a very exciting time to come on-board, particularly with the very strong supplier base and backing the company has from the Schenk Family Group.’

Craig Durham, managing director of Buckingham Schenk, adds: ‘I’m thrilled to welcome John to the team. Our off trade business has been our core strength for the last 40 years, and I believe John has the right experience and skillset to help us grow in an increasingly challenging market.’

We’re delighted to have John on board!
