The senior VP of US sales at Foster's Wine Estates has tendered his resignation.

Bruce Herman is set to leave the unit of Foster's Group at the beginning of October, the company said yesterday (9 June). Herman will continue in his current role until the end of this month, when he will transition into a temporary role overseeing strategic sales projects.

Further details behind Herman's decision were not disclosed.

"Since 2004, Bruce has managed the Foster's sales team through a series of significant changes," said Stephen Brauer, managing director of Foster's Americas. "Bruce has represented the Foster's sales organisation with the utmost professionalism. I want to thank him for his contributions and wish him well in the future."

A search has begun for a replacement.
