Simone da Silva
Senior Supply Chain Coordinator
Simone arrived in London 6 years ago from the sunny shores of Cape Town, South Africa. In May 2018, with zero knowledge of wine, she decided that there was no better place to learn than at Armit. Simone joins Armit from Christie’s, where she worked in the Art Transport department applying her Logistics prowess to a variety of auctions. Described as a quadruple threat (by herself and her mother), she is an avid singer, dancer, model and footballer. In her spare time, Simone enjoys playing all varieties of football and can often be called upon as a ‘gun for hire’ for any team in need of a player.
Colin’s wine journey started in 1989 working part-time in a Wine Rack whilst studying at university, and it was here the seed was sown for his passion for all things vinous. He has worked for several wine companies since then, most recently spending 13 years at Lea & Sandeman in Chelsea before taking a career break to look after his baby son for a year and a half. Leaving the joys of Teletubbies, Bugaboos and dirty nappies behind, the bright lights of Armit tempted him back to employment and he began working for us in February 2017. When not at work, Colin spends most of his time running around after the aforementioned toddler, but with the odd free minute he also enjoys cooking, gardening and playing squash to an increasingly average level.
