Edrington announces new CFO

10 August, 2016

Edrington has announced the appointment of Paul Hyde as its new chief financial officer.

Hyde (pictured) is a chartered accountant who joined the company in 1997 and has held a number of senior finance roles before becoming the company’s strategy and development director.

He was appointed to the Edrington Board in 2015 as managing director of regional power brands. In this role he is said to have combined the leadership of Edrington’s blended scotch whisky and rum portfolio - The Famous Grouse, Cutty Sark, and Brugal - with geographical responsibility for Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Dominican Republic.

Edrington chief executive, Ian Curle, said: “I’m very pleased to confirm that Paul will become Edrington’s chief financial officer. He has made a significant contribution to the company’s development over a period spanning nearly 20 years. His extensive commercial experience and leadership qualities will be invaluable for this key board appointment.”

Edrington’s principal shareholder is The Robertson Trust, which donated more than £18 million to a variety of charitable causes last year.
