James, who founded the company, previously worked at Siegel Wine Agencies, Oddbins, Novum, Brown Brothers, Delegats and Santa Rita. James started Delibo in order to run his own business and put to use the experience he had gained in all aspects of the wine trade. By 2016 he realised that the business was growing to the point at which another pair of hands would enable the business to expand. In September that year David Wright joined as Sales and Marketing Director. The two had worked together at Siegel in the early nineties.
From 1982 to 1993, David ran David Alexander Wine Merchants, a retail outlet in Maidenhead. He then joined Siegel Wine Agencies where he worked for fifteen years becoming Sales Director before the business was bought by Australian Wineries. He remained with ABS as General Manager for another ten years.
