You can take the girl away from the ferries, but never the ferries away from the girl! I have 20 years of experience of the Travel Retail and Duty Free business, first by working onboard the ferries on the Baltic Sea and then for the last eight years for an importer. On the ferries I have worked in all departments except the engine room, but quickly found out that my strengths lay in sales and social communication. When one's passions are wine and travelling, the Travel Retail department is the perfect place for me! At Bornicon & Salming I am the main key contact and brand manager when it comes to Travel Retail. My goal is to make sure that our products can be found in the shops and restaurants on all the ferries on the Baltic Sea. I also make sure that the crew knows our products and by executing staff trainings I give them the keys to sell them to the millions of passengers who travel on the ships every year. When needed, I help the rest of my team in other business tasks, like in restaurant sales and at fairs.

It's great to be back in business and to be a member of such a professional team! 

I am a retail-focused expert with experience in Marketing and Sales, Product Development and Business Development. I have fifteen years of work experience within the retail and FMCG industry and have previously worked both in a brewery as well as for alcoholic beverage companies for longer periods – leaving the HoReCa area very familiar to me. My goal is to build strong customer relationships, implement innovative products and services in order to improve the client experience and increase profitability for our customers.

I hope to meet you soon and make great deals together!

I have 20 years of work experience of international alcohol importing companies and can proudly say that I wouldn't change a day out of it. It's a rapid field, with both joyful people and extraordinary products. The alcohol business is quickly developing alongside the modern, global world. My strong side is customer service, and I have experience in both HoReCa and Alko sales. I'm competent in sales, marketing, logistics and coordination. At Bornicon & Salming my main focus will be working with Alko,  but I am very happy that I will have the possibility to expand my knowledge to the travel retail and the retailstore field. The team also seem to be superb!

Hi. I am the newest Bornicon & Salming team member. After a long history of working in restaurants, I have spent the past 20 years with international beverage groups working with customer service, HoReCa-retailers, restaurant chains as well as independent restaurants. I believe in long-term and customer relationships, based on commitment and trust. My strengths are my extensive know-how about both the beverage industry as well as the products I work with. I am also always eager to do trainings - something I have been enjoying for many years - without knowledge about the product and the fantastic stories that lay behind them, sales work would be difficult - even at restaurants - don’t you think? I hope to hear from you soon - and look forward to helping you with what ever your needs might be. Cheers!

Wine runs in my vains. Thirty years behind of tasted wines, many travels and great experiences in the beverage business. From those I live. I still travel every now and then and taste new vintages. Mostly I do my trips to the Mediterranean countries and France, especially to Bordeaux where the Sichel family is and my second "home" at Château Angludet in Margaux. The fresh whites from Austria and their upcoming trendy reds are also close to my heart amongst many many others, not to forget Champagne. Different cultures, my many experiences from different countries comes along with me wherever I go. These experiences and stories I’m willing to share in different tasting and cooking sessions whenever it is possible. See you soon and lets share our thoughts!
