LUX/ARGENTINA: SPI Group installs CEO at Achaval Ferrer
SPI Group has appointed a CEO to run its Argentinian winery Achaval Ferrer.
Silvio Oscar Alberto, previously general manager and winemaker at Diamandes Winery, started in the newly-created role yesterday (21 October), SPI said. It is the second major appointment at the Mendoza-based winery in the space of a week after SPI appointed Alejandro Rivara CFO.
Alberto will report directly to group CEO Val Mendeleev. He is charged with growing the Achaval Ferrer brand nationally and internationally and to increase its production capacity - both organically and through M&A, SPI said.
“His (Alberto's) knowledge of the wine industry and its dynamics will be essential as we expand SPI Group’s wine portfolio in Argentina and beyond” said Mendeleev.
Santiago Achaval will continue as Achaval Ferrer's board president and winemaker.
