Australian Vintage has hired Henry Moran to take on its Waitrose and Sainsbury's accounts

Australian Vintage has appointed a former employee of the defunct Waverley TBS as its new national account manager for Sainsbury's and Waitrose in the UK.

Henry Moran, who joined Waverley as its commercial controller for wine in July last year, starts in his new post at Australian Vintage tomorrow (7 November). Moran will take on some of the former responsibilities of Julian Dyer, who was promoted to the group's UK and Europe GM post in September

On Moran's appointment, Dyer said: “We’re delighted to announce that Henry will be joining our rapidly expanding team. He has great experience in the wine business which will strengthen the great skill set which already exists in the business.”

Prior to working for Waverley TBS, Moran spent six-and-a-half years at Irish food wholesaler Musgrave. 

Waverley TBS was forced into liquidation last month after administrators were unable to find a buyer.
