Stock Spirits Group has confirmed a change of finance director in Poland.

The company, which was formed in 2007 through the integration of Stock and Polmos Lublin, said yesterday (17 March) that Filip Dziurnikowski will assume the position, replacing Peter Whiskerd, who left the company in the first half of last year to pursue a different career path.

Dziurnikowski joins Stock from Heineken Commercial Services (Russia), where he held the post of financial director since 2006. He has been a member of Heineken's finance teams in both Russia and Poland for over 10 years, joining as a commercial controller at Heineken Poland in 2000.

"Filip will be a great asset to the already strong Polish team and I am happy to welcome him on board," said company CFO, Chris Heath. "It is an exciting time for Stock in the Polish market and we hope to continue to build our market share, which has grown from 7% to 20% in just two years."

With operations in Poland, Slovenia, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Italy, Stock also has presence in the USA through the Heritage Brands subsidiary.
