Rowan Gormley

CEO, Founder

Met with Olio, Ethical Market

Commercial background

Rowan runs Majestic Wine, which includes Naked Wines and Lay and Wheeler in addition to the Majestic core business.

After only just qualifying as an accountant, Rowan spent 7 years in private equity before having the good fortune to meet Richard Branson – who gave him the chance to set up Virgin Money.

This was followed by the Virgin One Account, Virgin Wines and Naked Wines.

Naked was acquired by Majestic Wine in 2015 and Rowan took over as CEO.

Join the food sharing revolution.

OLIO connects neighbours with each other and with local shops so surplus food and other items can be shared, not thrown away.

My meeting with Rowan was brilliantly helpful

Being able to draw upon his real life experience of building communities and fundraising was an incredible opportunity, and one that I would highly recommend! Brilliant programme, a privilege to be accepted. Really great use of time!
