Joannes van Goethem
Business Development Executive
Joannes (Barry to his friends, colleagues and customers) joined the team at Hammonds in February 2016 after spending the last 10 years working in and managing some of the finest bars in Manchester city centre. Prior to this he had earned his 'stripes' in his native Holland as a bartender, so don't be surprised to see him occasionally behind the bar with a shaker and stirrer in his hand as its firmly in his blood.
Barry will be managing our portfolio of customers in Manchester and the surrounding areas bringing his expert knowledge of wines, spirit and Champagnes to assist our customers when it comes to developing the drinks side of their business and maximising their profits.
A bit about me....
I love spending time with my two beautiful children Harrison and Jolene and my partner Susie. Having worked in bar for over 20 years I still like to mix a martini or two before our evening meal. I'm a big football fan and get really patriotic when ‘the Oranje’ play. I’ve got a real love for all things Whisk(e)y, wine and off course cocktails !
