Tim Fogarty

  • Beachhead Advisor, Europe

Tim Fogarty has three decades of experience within the wine & spirits sector globally. A part-time job in a bottle shop while
completing his Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Canterbury led to a career that saw him move through a small New Zealand company to become a senior executive in one of the world’s largest listed drinks companies.

Tim’s various roles have given him strong insights into developing and growing brands, sales and marketing, distribution and exporting to new markets. He has completed the Tuck Executive Development programme at Dartmouth College in the US.

While part of a large company, Tim has frequently taken a direct, hands-on approach to establishing new operations and markets. In 2011, he was appointed Vice-President of Constellations Brands EMEA, successfully building the company’s market presence and a wider team across Europe and the Middle East over eight years.
