GLOBAL: William Grant & Sons confirms "no direct replacement" after EMEA head quits
William Grant is saying goodbye to its EMEA head
William Grant & Sons' Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) MD has quit the company and is not being directly replaced.
Gordon Dron, who has been with the group for seven years, and EMEA chief since November 2010, has "decided to leave the business" following a company restructure, the group said yesterday (28 May). Dron is not being "directly replaced", a company spokesperson confirmed to just-drinks today.
However, Simon Hunt, the group's chief commerical officer will take over some of Dron's responsibilities, while covering more regions beyond the EMEA remit.
Prior to joining William Grant & Sons, Dron worked for Imperial Tobacco. Before this, he spent around seven years with Diageo, including a role as its market development director for south-east Asia.
