Lapostolle Wineries has appointed the son of its founders to CEO.
Charles de Bournet Marnier Lapostolle replaces Gonzalo Belemmi, who stays on in an advisory role, the Chilean wine maker said today (19 June). Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle, the great granddaughter of the creator of brandy liqueur Grand Marnier, and Cyril de Bournet started Lapostolle Wineries in 1994.
Alexandra will continue as chairman of Lapostolle and Charles will assume general management of the company, it said.
“We are thrilled that Charles will be even more involved in our family’s business and are confident that his leadership will bring Lapostolle to even greater heights well into the 21st century,” Alexandra said.
In 2009, Lapostolle improved its environmental credentials by securing carbon neutral status.
