TRINIDAD: CL WorldBrands appoints new sales directors
CL WorldBrands has announced two senior appointments.
The company, which is the parent of Burn Stewart Distillers, said today (17 January) that Andrew Holmes, formerly regional director for Europe and the Middle East, has been appointed to the position of sales director assuming overall responsibility for the international sales structure for the group's brands covering both the domestic and duty free channels for all regions excluding the UK, Australasia, the Americas and the Caribbean. Holmes joined CL WorldBrands from Pernod Ricard in 2003 and has held a variety of international sales positions throughout his career.
CL WorldBrands has also appointed a new director to the board of Burn Stewart. With immediate effect, Andrew Calder has been appointed to the position of sales director assuming responsibility for all cased and bulk revenue streams and acting as the key sales interface for Burn Stewart with the CL WorldBrands international sales team. Calder has been with the company for 12 years and has held a number of UK and international sales positions.
"These new appointments are very exciting for the group. The success and effectiveness of our sales structure is extremely important to our long term brand development plans and these appointments will allow us to grow our brand portfolio in a manner that will support our strategic goals," said CL WorldBrands' chief executive, Fraser Thornton.
As well as Burn Stewart, CL WorldBrands owns Angostura and Hine Cognac.
