The Edrington Group has added to its board of directors.

Callum Barton, the former president and CEO of Richemont North America, has joined the Scotch whisky company as a non-executive director.

"Callum's experience of the luxury goods market, coupled with his extensive knowledge of consumer loyalty and brand-building, will be of valuable assistance to the group as we seek to develop our own premium brands and achieve leading positions in key territories," said Ian Curle, chief executive of the maker of The Famous Grouse and The Macallan. "He will be an important member of the board as we commit increased resources to the long-term development of our key brands, especially our award-winning single malt portfolio. We look forward to Callum's contribution to the group and I am delighted to welcome him on-board."

Barton's appointment became effective from Friday (6 April). He joins two other non-executive directors, John Spence, who previously ran several major businesses in the Lloyds TSB Group, and Ronnie Bell, former group vice president with Kraft Foods.
