AUS: Treasury Wine Estates reveals new chairman
Treasury Wine Estates will have its second chairman in place in September
Treasury Wine Estates (TWE) has announced it has found a new chairman to replace Max Ould.
Paul Rayner, a non-executive director at the Melbourne-based winemaker and distributor, will succeed Ould, the group's first-ever chairman, on 1 September, the company said today (20 July).
Ould, who has been in the post since May last year, said: "It has been both a pleasure and a privilege to have served as the first chairman of Treasury Wine Estates and it is with comfort and confidence that I pass the baton on to Paul."
The company is also appointing three non-executive directors - Ed Chan, Garry Hounsell and Michael Cheek - who will also take up their positions from September.
Earlier this month, TWE revealed that Stephen Brauer, MD of its Beringer unit, had left the firm to pursue "external opportunities".
