UK: Halewood names marketing director
UK spirits group Halewood International has named former Constellation Brands executive Graham Oak as marketing director.
Oak joins the company from Constellation Europe, where he was senior vice president of marketing. Prior to his time at Constellation, Oak held sales and marketing roles at Diageo and Scottish & Newcastle.
Chairman and chief executive John Halewood said today (31 October) that he was "delighted" with Oak's move to the company.
He said: "He has a strong track record of success and his blend of marketing, sales and general management skills will help to further strengthen the management team as the company enters a new phase in its growth. Graham will be responsible for growing our existing portfolio as well as driving forward the NPD and new business agendas."
