Michael Saunders

We are pleased to announce that Michael Saunders has re-joined Bibendum as chief executive. Having worked for Bibendum since 1983, Michael led Bibendum for many years until its sale, building it to become one of the UK’s best-known, award-winning wine businesses. Michael will also be joined by James Kowszun who returns as COO, a position he held for nine years until June 2016.

C&C’s CEO Stephen Glancey comments, “We are delighted to have Michael and James back in the business. Bibendum is a real jewel and under Michael’s leadership and we expect to see Bibendum continue to flourish, working hard to deliver the very best wines, spirits and services to our customers.”

Michael Saunders says, “After spending my entire career at Bibendum, it feels incredibly special to be back. The Bibendum team, our customers and our suppliers have been part of my life for so long, the decision to rejoin was easy. As part of the C&C Group, I know we have the backing to quickly strengthen and develop what is already a great business. James and I will be joining a strong group of people who share our passion and determination to take Bibendum to the next level.”
