Former Constellation Wines boss Stephen Millar has been appointed as the chairman of Australian synthetic cork manufacturer, NuKorc.

Millar was the managing director of BRL Hardy from 1991 until it was acquired by
Constellation Wines in 2001. Since then, he was CEO of Constellation Wines until his recent retirement, when he became non-executive chairman of the group.

He had joined the NuKorc board as representative for Paragon Equity, which in May announced it would invest US$3.5m in NuKorc in the next year.

 "We wanted to add someone with strong international links in the wine industry and were delighted that Stephen was available and willing to take on the role, his knowledge of the wine industry will provide an outstanding opportunity for NuKorc," said Greg Boulton, chairman of the equity firm's advisors, Paragon Advisory.

NuKorc CEO Brian Dolling said: "It is fantastic to have someone with Stephen's understanding of the wine industry on the board. He has made an immediate contribution."

NuKorc, based in suburban Pooraka, makes about 500m closures a year, exporting to wineries in France, Spain, Italy and the US as well as in Australia and has established finishing plants for its product in France, Spain and the USA to reduce overseas delivery times.
