UK: Edrington Group creates strategy director post
The Edrington Group has announced an addition to its board of directors, with the creation of the new post of group strategy director.
The company, which owns The Famous Grouse and The Macallan Scotch whisky brands, confirmed today (23 April) that Trina Glen will move up to assume the position, where she will look to further develop the group's route to market in the 100-plus countries that Edrington exports to.
Glen joined the group in 1994 as financial controller with Robertson & Baxter and, more recently, has led the commercial team at Perth, overseeing the development of the group's business in the Asia and America export markets, the company said.
"I am delighted to announce Trina's appointment," said company chief executive Ian Curle. "Her intellect, enthusiasm and commitment to the business will be of valuable assistance to the ongoing development of the group."
Reporting directly to Curle, Glen will be based at the group's corporate HQ and bottling plant in Glasgow. She joins Bill Farrar (sales and marketing), Richard Hunter (finance) and Graham Hutcheon (operations) on the executive board along with non-executive directors Sir Ian Good (chairman), Callum Barton and Ronnie Bell.
