Australian Vintage has confirmed a change of PR & communications officer, with UK trade journalist Rosie Davenport moving to the country to assume the role.

Davenport, who started in the role in mid-April, replaces Karina Lamb, who has who left for a job in the finance industry, a spokesperson told just-drinks today. She will be based out of Sydney.

As well as spending time in "senior editorial roles" at Harpers Wine & Spirit and Off Licence News, Davenport has also worked as a media consultant for "high-profile" drinks brands, both in the UK and internationally.

"I've known Rosie for over 17 years and have always been impressed both with her skills as an outstanding journalist and her in-depth global wine knowledge," said CEO Neil McGuigan. "She is … able to take a complicated discussion about wine and make it accessible to consumers, which is something I greatly admire and believe is lacking across the industry globally."

Last month, Australian Vintage announced the promotion of two of its senior executive team in what the group called a "realignment" of its business.
