UK wine agent Bibendum has appointed Jeremy Young as chief operating officer.

Young, whose responsibilities will include finance, IT and operations, joins Bibendum following a 12 year spell at industry shipper DHL - most recently as global finance director of the company's IT division.
 
Bibendum managing director Michael Saunders said: "We are very pleased to welcome Jeremy to the management team. He brings skills and knowledge that we did not possess at a very important time for the company. Bibendum is set to grow rapidly over the next few years and Jeremy's appointment is a critical step to ensure that we achieve our goals."

Earlier this month (3 February), Bibendum announced that joint managing director Dan Jago is standing down from his position on 1 March, with Saunders taking more control.
