US: New board member at Delicato Family
Delicato Family Vineyards has announced an addition to its board of directors. Chris Day, chief executive officer and president of Australian wine and food services group, Food and Beverage Australia Limited (FABAL), has been elected to the board, chief executive officer Chris Indelicato announced yesterday.
"We are very pleased to have Chris Day join our board," said Indelicato. "His great depth of international experience and talent in case goods, strategic planning and global wine markets will add even greater dimension to our business endeavours."
In addition to his 22-year stewardship of FABAL, Day's recent experience includes four years as chief executive officer and president of Berren Asset Management, the manager of The International Wine Investment Fund. The fund has wine investments in Europe, Australasia and the US. Previously, he spent nine years in strategic planning and business development roles at BRL Hardy (now part of Constellation Brands), where he was also a member of the executive committee.
"I am excited to join Chris Indelicato and his family in the next phase of the family's 80-year-old development," Day said. "Under their stewardship, it is an exciting time to be involved in the development of a strong domestic and internationally focused wine marketing and wine services group."
Delicato Family Vineyards is the eighth largest winery by volume in the US. The winery, owned and operated by the Indelicato Family, markets several brands including Delicato Family Vineyards, Monterra and Clay Station.
