Cosentino Signature Wines has appointed a new chief financial officer.

The California wine company said today (28 February) that Joseph W. Andreski would assume the position with immediate effect.

Andreski was previously senior vice president and CFO with Foster's Wine Estates America in California. Following the acquisition of Beringer Blass Wines, Andreski led the integration team.

Prior to Foster's, Andreski held a variety of positions at Southcorp USA, including senior vice president and CFO of Southcorp Wines/The Americas.

Earlier this year, Cosentino forecast a strong fourth-quarter to help full-year sales marginally exceed expectations. The company is scheduled to post its full-year figures next month.
