Louis Latour Agencies has confirmed a change of managing director.

The UK wine agency, which is owned by Maison Louis Latour, said earlier today (6 September) that Will Oatley will assume the position from 1 October. Oatley, who joins the division from rival agency Mentzendorff, will replace Dan Bolton, who left at the end of April to join Hi-Spirits, a spokesperson for Louis Latour told just-drinks.
