Coravin APAC has announced that its current Managing Director, Christian Pillsbury, is leaving the company to head back to the US.
Pillsbury joined Coravin in 2015 and established the company in Asia with an office in Hong Kong. Pillsbury will be replaced by Coravin APAC’s current Marketing Director, Sanam Thakur, who joined the company in August last year.
The Drinks Business reported that Pillsbury said of his successor: “Sanam is the natural choice to take over my position.
“In her tenure so far as Coravin’s director of marketing, Asia Pacific, she has revolutionised our ability to communicate with both partners and consumers.
“I am confident that Sanam’s energy, ambition and common sense approach to partnerships will define 2017 as our best year yet. I will continue to support Sanam and the Coravin team in whatever capacity I am needed from my new base in the United States.
“Coravin has truly transformed people’s wine drinking habits and experiences.
“I am excited to help extend this experience to a new and diverse group of consumers across Asia Pacific.”
