Janneau has appointed Olivier Dusautoir as international sales director as it looks to boost exports going forward.

The Armagnac producer confirmed earlier this week that Dusautoir will head up its international sales efforts, reporting into Janneau owner and MD, Fabio Giovinetti. Dusautoir's CV includes time with Rémy Martin in Cognac, Pommery in Champagne, and wine companies M.Chapoutier and André Lurton.

“The company wants to expand into new markets,” a spokesperson for Janneau told just-drinks yesterday (8 November). “We feel that there are some opportunities for growth.”
