Vice President of Marketing

Geraud LeClercq, Vice President of Marketing, Folio Fine Wine Partners

Hailing from the heart of Champagne in France, my journey into the world of wine was destined from the start. From a young age, I was captivated by the rich culture of wine, with a special affinity for Champagne. My career in the realm of wine and spirits began unexpectedly when I embarked on a summer internship with Veuve Clicquot, a distinguished part of the LVMH family, while pursuing my Business School education in Reims. Little did I know that this experience would set the course for my lifelong dedication to the industry.

In 2001, I seized the opportunity to make the move to New York, a city where I have since lived, worked, and reveled in for over two decades. During this time, I have assumed various senior roles in Marketing, Finance, and Sales within the LVMH family, serving iconic brands like Veuve Clicquot, Moet Hennessy, Glenmorangie, and Ardbeg.

Marketing and selling wine is all about experiences, anecdotes and story-telling, meeting passionate people, not taking ourselves too seriously and recognizing the privilege of representing venerable brands, some with centuries of history.

Joining Folio Fine Wine Partners is refreshing and exciting on so many levels for me: working with new people and learning about new brands, bringing experience while learning from others, building new bridges culturally and professionally, and more importantly: realizing how lucky I am to be able to work and play at the same time!
