Glenmorangie Company appoints new president

25 August, 2011

The Glenmorangie Company has promoted chief operating officer Paul Skipworth to the post of president and managing director.

He succeeds Paul Neep who has retired from his role as president and CEO after 14 years. Neep is to become non-executive chairman.

Skipworth said: “We are very grateful for the immense contribution Paul Neep has made to the company over the past 14 years. In particular, he was instrumental in successfully delivering a major restructure and investment programme which leaves the company and the brands in a very strong position. We look forward to his continued contribution to the company as chairman.”

Skipworth has been the COO of Glenmorangie since January 2009. Prior to this he was regional director within Moët Hennessy Asia-Pacific.

In separate moves, Glenmorangie’s international marketing and communication director, Marc Hoellinger, has been promoted to marketing strategy director for Moët Hennessy Wines and Spirits.

Marc is succeeded by David White, who is promoted from senior marketing manager at Glenmorangie to marketing and communication director. In this role he will be a member of the company’s executive committee.

The Glenmorangie Company is part of LVMH.
