Jim Beam Brands Worldwide has appointed Jim Clerkin as senior vice president, Jim Beam Brands Worldwide, and president of the company's North American spirits business. A newly created position, Clerkin joins from Allied Domecq where he is president of Allied Domecq Spirits, North America, with responsibility for the US and Canada.
The appointment follows the company's acquisition of several Allied Domecq brands including Canadian Club, Sauza Tequila and Courvoisier cognac. The company also remains in discussions with the Federal Trade Commission regarding its intention to purchase Maker's Mark Bourbon.
"With the acquisition of Allied Domecq spirits and wine brands, we are building a new global leader in the beverage alcohol business," said Tom Flocco, president and CEO of Jim Beam Brands Worldwide. "We are pleased to have top talent such as Jim Clerkin joining our world class management team to oversee our North American spirits business."

Flocco continued: "Jim's long-time industry experience, great relationships with distributors and customers, and understanding of every angle of the North American spirits business will be instrumental in leveraging our new super premium portfolio of brands."

Clerkin will take the helm as president of the North American spirits business for Jim Beam Brands Worldwide when the integration of Allied Domecq brands and their associated assets is further completed. The effective date is expected to be no later than January 2006.
