Quintessential Brands has made another appointment to its senior team

Quintessential Brands has appointed a new group HR director as it continues with its expansion plans.

Andrew Dyos replaces Martin Kay, who held the post on an interim basis, with immediate effect, the G&J Distillers owner announced earlier today (3 February). Dyos previously headed up human resources for a division of UK & Ireland food business Greencore Group. 

Kay has held the job on a temporary basis as a replacement for Donna Whittaker, who left the group last November after eight years. A Quintessential spokesperson was unable to say why she had moved on. 

Dyos' duties will include overseeing the group's G&J Distillers and Essential Drinks units, both based in Warrington, Cheshire, as well as the main Quintessential business in London.  

Dyos said: “It’s great to join the Quintessential Brands Group and to lead the people agenda at such an exciting time in the group’s evolution.” 

The private, London-headquartered company, whose co-founder is former Gruppo Campari CEO Enzo Visone, has made a number of senior appointments lately, including a group CFO last week
