The Charmer Sunbelt Group has beefed up its human resources department.

The US company, which distributes beers, wines and spirits across 15 states, said yesterday (18 December) that Ann Giambusso will be promoted to executive vice president of HR from 1 January.

Giambusso joins Diana Carrasquillo, the former manager of corporate benefits, who became director of corporate benefits on 1 October.

CSG said the appointments were "a strengthening of CSG's corporate executive structure to maximise support for the organisation's houses nationwide".

Giambusso has headed up CSG's human resources department since 2002, first as vice president and now as executive vice president. In her new position, Giambusso will report to  vice chairman and CEO Charles Merinoff.
