Paul Schaafsma

CEO, Accolade Wines

Last ranked: 46

Previously Accolade’s UK boss, Schaafsma replaced John Ratcliffe at the helm of the global business in October. Accolade had just snapped up Chilean winery Anakena, declaring its intent to be a leading player across the New World. But with rivals Kumala and Banrock Station seeing sliding sales in the UK, Schaafsma has a tough job ahead.
