Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits has appointed a long-serving Pernod Ricard USA executive as its new CFO. 

Peter Szemenyei, who has spent the last ten years at Pernod, will report to Deutsch's president Tom Steffanci, the New York-based wine and spirits marketer said yesterday (1 August). He will be responsible for all strategic and tactical financial activities, while leading the firm's pricing, forecasting, operations, analytics and finance teams, the company said. 

It is not immediately clear who Szemenyei will replace. 

“Deutsch Family is a leader in the industry and I am thrilled to become a part of the executive team and help build on what is an impressive history of driving growth,” said Szemenyei, who also worked for Seagram for 19 years prior to Pernod. 

In May this year, Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits changed its name, having previously been WJ Deutsch & Sons. 

Among the brands it represents in the US are Casella Wine's Yellow Tail and Georges Duboeuf's Beaujolais wine brands, as well as the Lady Cognac and Luksusowa vodka spirits brands.
