Johnny Wheeler, MD of our valued clients the Colchester Wine Company, has made the shortlist for the Colchester Oyster Awards Businessman of the Year. Open to any business located within the CO postcode area, the awards attract entries from as far afield as Harwich, Walton, Sudbury and beyond.
Johnny was selected on the strength of his business leadership, his innovation and clarity of vision. Leading by example, Johnny heads a dedicated team which is as passionate about extending the appreciation and understanding of wine as it is about simply selling it. The sixth generation of the Wheeler family to head the business, Johnny is recognised for bringing the Wheeler companies into the 21st century and for developing the business and brand to its full potential. Johnny has concluded six or seven strategic deals over the last 15 years, increasing shareholder value each time.
Johnny is one of just four finalists selected for the Businessman of the Year award following an in depth interview with the judges. Johnny’s success in reaching the finals reflects the vibrancy of his personality as well as the strength of his application. We at Mackman all wish him the best of luck for the awards ceremony on the 25th.
