Centre Vinicole - Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte has promoted Julie Campos to the post of CEO.

She will succeed Dominique Pierre who is retiring at the end of the year after a 20-year spell with the Champagne co-operative. Campos is currently the company's commercial director, a post she has held since March 2011.

She was previously with Rhône Valley wine producer La Cave de Tain-l’Hermitage and prior to that was employed at Maison Moreau & Fils.

Campos' nomination, proposed by Nicolas Feuillatte's president, Véronique Blin, was unanimously endorsed by the company's board.

"Julie Campos will bring the necessary drive and direction to the task of further developing Nicolas Feuillatte," the company said.
