Guy Ruston

Managing Director Asia Pacific

After completing his studies in the UK and California, Guy joined the wine trade back in 2003 as something “fun to do” while he figured out how to make use of his degree. Within 6 months he discovered that a career in wine is what he had wanted to do all along, he just hadn’t realized it yet. Guy later joined BI in London in 2007, transferred to Hong Kong in 2010 and has been running our businesses in Asia since 2015. When he is not talking about wine, writing about wine or indeed drinking wine, Guy can be found gallivanting around the world exploring new places, discovering different cultures and meeting new people.

Keith Ho

Head of Trade

Keith began his career in wine back in 2002. After 6 years with Hong Kong’s largest wine retailer Keith joined BI’s Hong Kong team in 2008 where he has remained a permanent fixture ever since. A Bordeaux and Burgundy man, there are few wine companies that can match Keith’s individual sales of Classed Growth Claret and Grand Cru Burgundy during the last 10+ years. Working with different Brits during his time at BI, Keith has become a connoisseur of English humour. Outside of work and wine, Keith enjoys spending time with his family and two dogs; Choco and Kimchi.


Hamish Orr Ewing

Sales Director

Hamish decided to become a wine merchant aged 14 when he saw family friend and trade legend Teddy Davis at work for Taittinger and realised that some people are employed to drink Champagne. He studied Ancient Greek Drinking Culture at university, whilst working in vineyards in Champagne. Upon moving to Bordeaux he played on the Wing for Pauillac Rugby Club for two seasons and worked the 2008 and 2009 vintages in the cellars of Chateaux Giscours and Du Tertre in Margaux. Returning home in 2010, he attained his WSET Diploma in Wines & Spirits and worked for BB&R for five years in their Fine Wine Team. His next role was at a Burgundy & Champagne specialist in London, opening their merchant sales department in Europe and Asia, representing great domaines like Prieure Roch. Finally in 2018 a long-time ambition to work in Asia was fulfilled when he landed his dream job as a Sales Director with BI in Hong Kong, the leading British merchant in Asia. Rugby, rum, cigars, history and gardening are his main vices.


Ichie Yoshida

Sales Manager

A native of Kobe, Japan, Ichie’s passion for wine began while studying in Pennsylvania (of all places). After acquiring a BS in Business/Hospitality management, Ichie’s path less-travelled, finally led her across the Atlantic, when in 2000, she joined a prominent London-based Fine Wine Broker. Ichie has never looked back since, later working for the world’s oldest wine merchant before finally finding her home at BI in 2008. A walking encyclopedia of the great wines of Burgundy, when Ichie doesn’t have her nose in a glass or a book, she enjoys yoga, cooking and travelling.


Clement Lam

Sales Executive

One of the nicest guys in the wine trade, Clem joined BI in 2015 after studying in Australia and then cutting his teeth at one of Hong Kong’s top wine retailers. From trouble shooting technology issues to educating his colleagues on obscure, up-and-coming vignerons, Clem is a tri-lingual (Cantonese, Mandarin and English, both traditional and Aussie) man for all seasons and an integral part of BI’s global success.

Angelina Teh

Managing Director Singapore [Mobile: +65 9387 4910]

After over 20 years in Advertising & Marketing, Angelina decided a change was long overdue and jumped at the opportunity when she was offered a job in wine investment in 2007. In that time, she got to know BI and was offered the opportunity to join the family in 2010, taking on the challenge of kick-starting BI’s presence in Singapore that same year in June. Fast forward a decade later, Angelina’s efforts have cemented BI’s place as one of the most successful wine and spirits businesses in Singapore and South East Asia. Outside of work, Angelina loves being pampered at spas and travelling with her family.

The following year marked his first formal foray into the Wines and Spirits industry in a full-time Sales role in our Singapore office, and the rest, as they say, is history. Today, Mark assists the BI Singapore office in managing their wide portfolio of clients across the region, including helping out with administrative & storage matters in Singapore.
