Skalli has poached an executive from Pernod Ricard to head up its 'premium channel' sales in the UK.

The French wine producer, based in the south of the country, confirmed earlier today (19 April) that Owain Davies is set to replace Guillaume Herbenet in the role. Herbenet left Skalli in January to return to France.

Davies leaves Pernod's UK arm, where his last role was as a business development executive for the on-trade and as a field sales manager.

Skalli produces wines in Corsica, the Languedoc, the Rhone Valley and Provence in the south of France and Napa Valley in California.
