Cox said: “I am delighted to have been asked to join the highly respected team at Vinopolis, in what is an exciting time for the continued development of the offer and concept. While we have been trading in a period of ambiguity, there is still a huge potential for growth and with the Vinopolis team, I am very much looking forward to progressing the business to the next level.”
