As Managing Director of Smidge Wines, Trish brings a wealth of business development and global marketing experience to the label, learnt from her time in the IT industry.
Before joining Matt at Smidge, Trish held regional and global appointments including the Asia Pacific Director for Marketing & Business Planning, & Global Marketing Director for Offshore Applications Capabilities at EDS, one of the world's largest IT services companies.
She has participated in business mentoring programs and is often sought after to present at industry conferences and educational forums. In 2000, Trish graduated as ‘Sales Institute Top Performer' from the EDS Global Sales Institute, and in 2003 was a finalist in the Australian Young Business Woman of the Year.
The common connection between her previous career and time at Smidge Wines - apart from enjoying a glass of wine! - is her commitment to a vision for excellence and a passion to create it. She frequently travels to China to expand the Smidge Wines label globally and can be found behind the counter at Cellar Door open days or acting as a cellar hand during vintage.
Trish lives in Adelaide with Matt, and their three children Eliza, Oscar and Airlie.
