Stock Spirits Group has appointed a finance director for its international division.

The company, which was created through the integration of Stock and Polmos Lublin in 2007, said yesterday (5 May) that Peter Sheridan, formerly finance director at Enotria Winecellars, will assume the newly-created position.

"Stock Spirits Group has a clear strategic vision for their expansion and a portfolio of high quality brands with huge growth potential," said Sheridan. "I am looking forward to working with the team to help the business achieve its long term goals."
