Lenka Sedlackova MW was born and raised in the Czech Republic but her love of languages took her to Germany and subsequently the UK, where she lives today.

In her past role as Agency Manager for renowned UK importer Fields, Morris and Verdin (part of Berry Bros & Rudd), Lenka was responsible for brand management and commercial strategy for some of FMV's most prestigious agencies from regions as varied as Burgundy, Champagne, Spain, USA and Greece.
