Founder and CEO of Thomson & Scott
Amanda Thomson is the passionate CEO and Founder of Thomson & Scott, winner of the EY, Winning Women 2017 and the Le Cordon Bleu Entrepreneur of the Year 2017.
She is leading the transparency in wine movement by creating a company that asks consumers to demand what's in their bottles. By example, Thomson & Scott produces top quality Champagne and Prosecco with as little intervention as possible in the production process and highlights its vegan and organic credentials.
Raised on a vegetarian, no sugar diet by her health-conscious mother, Amanda Thomson has always had a keen interest in what’s in her food. A lover of Champagne and sparkling wine, she discovered that there was more than just grapes and alcohol in her favourite drinks.
After a successful career as an Arts Broadcaster at the BBC, Amanda moved her young family to Paris and studied for her Diploma in Wine at the renowned Le Cordon Bleu School. Her brand now sells in key territories around the world including the U.S., Canada, South Africa, New Zealand, Mexico and Hong Kong.
In an effort to be the first wine company to also put a real focus on wine packaging and its harmful impact on the environment, all its own deliveries are made with packaging that is 100% recyclable.
