It took Remy Cointreau five days to find a new CEO for Remy Martin

Rémy Cointreau has confirmed the appointment of a new CEO for its Rémy Martin Cognac division, only four days after the sudden departure of the previous incumbent.

Eric Vallat was unveiled earlier today (27 January) as the head of Rémy Martin by the firm. Vallat joins Rémy Cointreau from French clothing and skincare firm Bonpoint, where he has been chairman since 2008.

He replaces Patrick Piana, who stepped down at the end of last week.

“Eric Vallat will assume overall responsibility for the House of Rémy Martin,” the company said today. “He will continue the group’s policy of adding value and maintaining the reputation for quality of the Rémy Martin and Louis XIII brands, which is consistent with evolving worldwide consumption patterns. “
