Jackson Family Wines has appointed Bill O’Connor to the role of executive vice president of sales for its Majestic Fine Wines division.

The California-based wine producer said earlier this week that O'Connor will replace Rick Tigner, who moved to become president of Jackson Family Wines earlier this month.

O’Connor joined Jackson in 1995 as an employee of the then newly-formed Regal Wine Company. Since then, he has held eight positions within the sales force and relocated three times.
