Independent Liquor Group (ILG) chief executive officer Allen De Costa has renewed his contract with the co-operative wholesaler for another three years.

ILG’s chairman Colin Waller announced yesterday that De Costa would continue in his role as chief executive officer, which he commenced in June of 2012 following the resignation of Doug Evans.

De Costa originally joined ILG in October of 2011 in the role of general manager – trading. 

Under De Costa’s leadership, the ILG business has been turned around from five consecutive years of losses to a net profit of $1.2 million in 2013.

ILG has also enjoyed a period of significant growth in membership for both its banner groups and volume across New South Wales and Queensland.

According to De Costa, he’s looking forward to further reclaiming ILG’s success story and building on its longevity by continuing to put the focus on providing excellent service to its members.

“ILG celebrates a milestone next year, turning 40 and fabulous, life begins at 40 so they say and we’re definitely here to stay,” said De Costa.
