The Independent Liquor Group (ILG) has announced a new management team for its Queensland operations.

Roger LeSauvage, has been appointed ILG’s Queensland manager, with John Rush and Dale Ledger joining him as business development executives.

LeSauvage will take up his appointment on August 18, while Rush and Ledger started this week. They will be based at ILG’s Queensland warehouse and distribution centre in Richlands.

ILG is a cooperative that supplies liquor to 176 shareholder members in hotels, clubs and liquor stores in Queensland, trading mainly under the Liquorstop banner. It also has the TABcorp account as preferred liquor wholesaler to the Conrad

Treasury Casino in Brisbane, Conrad Jupiters on the Gold Coast, Jupiters Townwsville and Star City Casino in Sydney.

ILG has a further 700 members with more than 1000 outlets in NSW, and last financial year generated sales of $247 million.

ILG Executive Chairman Bob Bourne said the company’s Queensland operation was positioned well for strong growth in 2008-09.

“Our Queensland shareholder members are very passionate about their role in providing customers with a competitive alternative to the major liquor chains, and they will get every support from the new management team to build on their success,” he said.

“These appointments are part of a re-structure of ILG, that involves a much stronger focus on promotional activities to help our Queensland shareholder members generate even stronger sales in the coming financial year.”
