William Grant & Sons is changing its group FD

William Grant & Sons has appointed a new group finance director. 

Mike Lamont will replace Dermid Strain, who is leaving the company at the end of this month for "personal reasons", a spokesperson confirmed to just-drinks today (17 April). Lamont has recently been involved with William Grant & Sons in "developing commerical opportunities", the company said.

He had previously served as the group's finance director for its sales & marketing division, but then left the Glenfiddich producer to "pursue some private equity opportunities", a statement said.

The news comes after William Grant announced the appointment of a new boss for its US division yesterday.
