Edel Ebbs

After spending 15+ years as a senior executive in capital markets, corporate communications and corporate strategy with a global technology company, Edel Ebbs Dip WSET decided in 2014 to shift gears and pursue her dual passions: working with early-stage growth companies and learning about all things wine.

In addition to holding an MBA from Dalhousie University and the Certificate in Winemaking from the University of California (Davis), Edel completed the WSET Diploma in Wine and Spirits at IWEG, the WSET Level 3 Award in Wine and Spirits at the WSET London School, and is a Certified Sommelier with the Court of Master Sommeliers. Never one to shy away from a challenge, Edel is now a Stage 2 Master of Wine (MW) candidate and takes every opportunity to add one more region to her collection of wine-related travel experiences.

Edel has been on IWEG’s Board of Directors since 2016 and currently supports a number of technology start-ups while also consulting for clients on wine-related corporate and private events.
