Pernod Ricard has confirmed the appointment of a new VP for global marketing at The Absolut Company.

The division, which saw its former global marketing VP, Anna Malmhake, become CEO and chairman of Irish Distillers in September, said earlier today (10 September) that Jonas Tåhlin has assumed the role, moving from his position in The Absolut Company's brand development team.

Tåhlin, 36, has held several positions with Pernod, including VP of marketing for vodka at Pernod Ricard USA, regional director for the Americas and zone director for West Europe.

He will be based out of Stockholm and will assume responsibility for spirits brands including Absolut vodka, Malibu and Kahlua.
