Treasury Wine Estates has announced three appointments to its executive leadership team as part of a global organisational restructure.
The roles will report directly to Treasury Wine Estates CEO, David Dearie.
Stephen Brauer has been appointed to the role of managing director Beringer.
Brauer has more than twenty years of experience with global wine and spirits companies including Beam Global, Peak Wines, Seagram and Pernod Ricard.
In his current role of managing director, Americas, he has led the Americas region since April 2009, and therefore has an intimate understanding of the flagship Beringer brand and US portfolio.
Simon Marton has been appointed to the role of managing director Wolf Blass.
Marton has more than 16 years of experience in the drinks industry and joined Mildara Blass in 1997.
He will transition from his current role as marketing director ANZ and brings experience in wine category brand building and innovation.
The two will be responsible for setting the strategic direction of the Beringer and Wolf Blass foundation brands respectively, along with a selection of regional champion and local brands.
Stuart McNab has been appointed to the role of chief supply officer.
He currently holds the position of director of Wine Production ANZ and was previously executive general manager grape resources at Southcorp.
“Stephen, Simon and Stuart each bring a terrific combination of experience, business acumen and passion for wine to their new roles,” said Treasury Wine Estates CEO, David Dearie.
“I’m delighted to have been able to fill these roles with candidates of their calibre, and I look forward to working with them in our pursuit to be recognised as the world’s most successful and celebrated wine company.
“Our new global structure places equal emphasis on our brands, supply and the regions in which we operate. It will allow us to pursue growth opportunities that optimise the returns for our business as a whole.”
