The change of leadership at Campari's Australia, New Zealand & Pacific Islands takes place next week

Campari has confirmed a change of leadership at its Australia, New Zealand & Pacific Islands division.

The unit said earlier today (11 October) that Shane O’Hart will assume the position of MD from 16 October. When contacted by just-drinks, a spokesperson for the division said that O'Hart will replace Shane Richardson, who is leaving on 15 October “to take up a new professional opportunity”.

Richardson has headed up the Australia, New Zealand & Pacific Islands operations since November 2009.

O’Hart, meanwhile, joined Campari in 2010 as state sales manager for the Western Australia and South Australia states and the Northern Territory of Australia. He was promoted to sales director for Australia in 2012.
