John Colley

Executive Chairman and CEO

John previously spent 17 years in senior roles with Kingfisher - including Group Chief Trading Officer and Commercial Director at Screwfix, where he pioneered the Trade Counter format. He also spent five years in the Netherlands, as CEO of Praxis DIY and executive board member of Maxeda Group.

John was named Drinks Business Man of the Year in 2021, and is the highest rated retail CEO on GlassDoor.

Robert Cooke

Chief Operating Officer

Rob oversees Majestic's buying, eCommerce, marketing and on-trade businesses - and has played a key role in re-establishing our reputation for selling interesting, quality wines.

Rob joined Majestic in April 2019 from Tesco, where he was Category Director for Beers, Wines & Spirits. He was also previously head of buying at Sainsbury's. Rob's passion for wine was a key factor in coming here: 'I've always loved Majestic as a customer, so helping to shape the best offer in the market is a dream job for me.'

Rob was Drinks Business Man of the Year in 2020 and is hugely proud of a buying team that has won over 20 awards in the last three years.


Favourite drink: Red Burgundy.

Alex Jablonowski

Chief Financial Officer

Alex joined Majestic in February 2020 to take responsibility for the Finance team, as well as the overall direction of our channel and trading offer.

He brings a wealth of experience in both public and private businesses - previous roles include Costa, Hamleys, Tesco and Oasis - and has played a pivotal role in the restructuring and continued success of the business over the last two years.

In his spare time, Alex enjoys walking (and sometimes running) with his dog, as well as spending time with his family.


Favourite drink: A good Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

Keith Blessley

Retail Director

With more than 20 years in Majestic, Keith is one of our longest serving staff members - and the ideal person to oversee the day-to-day delivery of our customer experience through over 200 stores.

Keith started as a Trainee Manager in our Weybridge branch in 2002 and worked in a variety of roles before becoming Retail Director in 2021.

'There is something genuinely unique and special about Majestic,' he says. 'We have a responsibility to keep it that way - by creating a consistently great experience for all our customers and colleagues every day.'


Favourite drink Something red and big (Spanish or Italian).

Sue Roberts

Supply Chain Director

Sue's job is to make sure the right wines are in the right place at the right price when people want to buy them - no mean feat during the many challenges posed by Covid and Brexit!

Sue has over 25 year supply chain experience, and joined Majestic in 2017, having previously worked at Travis Perkins, Wickes and Sainsburys. She manages our end-to-end logistics: bringing in products from suppliers and distributing them to stores and customers through our Hemel Hempstead Depot, third party couriers and Majestic's own fleet of HGVs and store vans.

Sue's team has won plaudits across the industry for Majestic's consistently high levels of availability and best-in-class delivery.


Favourite drink: Provence rosé.

Jacqui Rouse

People Director

Jacqui joined Majestic in Spring 2021 and oversees our HR function - arguably the most important role in a business known for the quality and engagement of its people!

She brings extensive experience from across the drinks, retail and hospitality sectors (including at Moet Hennessy, De Beers, Hobbs and, most recently, Prezzo).

Jacqui's key focus is to continue Majestic's reputation as a people-focused business: 'Lots of businesses will tell you people are their biggest asset - but, in Majestic, it's absolutely true. We never take that for granted - and we're committed to giving our colleagues the support, recognition and working environment that will allow them to do their best work.'


Favourite drink: Pinot Noir, or a crisp Pouilly Fumé.

Nick Workman

IT Director

Nick is another Majestic veteran - with over 25 years hands-on experience giving him an unrivalled understanding of our stores, our teams and the systems that make them work.

Nick started his Majestic career in stores and helped to set up the Commercial operation before taking on his current role as IT Director in 2019. His team has been responsible for streamlining and transforming Majestic's back office systems - improving the experience in stores as well as launching a new eCommerce site in 2020.

Nick says his key focus is to 'keep the lights green - and make sure we have the structure in place to grow as a truly integrated omni-channel business.'


Favourite drink: An ice cold beer - or whatever my local Majestic team recommends!
