US: Cosentino CFO sacked after two months
US wine producer Cosentino Signature Wines has sacked newly-appointed CFO Joe Andreski.
The company said today (20 April) that he was "unable to make the necessary transition from a large corporate environment to that of a high growth company".
Cosentino said a replacement would be sought for Andreski, who was appointed less then two months ago (28 February), with its executive chairman Larry Soldinger taking care of finances in the meantime.
Andreski was previously senior vice president and CFO with Foster's Wine Estates America in California, having previously held a variety of positions at Southcorp USA, including senior vice president and CFO of Southcorp Wines/The Americas.
A Cosentino spokesperson in the UK confirmed the decison to just-drinks, and said: "He came from a very big company to a very small but fast-moving one."
