The global commercial director of UK distiller William Grant & Sons has left amid restructuring at the company, according to local reports.

Simon MacDonald is said to have joined the UK arm of technology company Kabel-X, according to a report in the Scotland on Sunday newspaper yesterday (5 November).

William Grant, which owns brands including Glenfiddich Scotch whisky, is said to be looking to build a new management structure that will see the creation of four divisions along geographic lines.

The company is on the prowl for more acquisitions to add to last year's purchase of French brandy group Raynal & Cie. However, last month, William Grant distanced itself from the race to buy Whyte & Mackay.

Officials at William Grant could not be reached for comment as just-drinks went to press.
