David Halliday has resigned from his position as Campari Australia’s Managing Director Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Islands.
Halliday was appointed to the role in September 2015 and has told TheShout that his resignation is due to “personal reasons”.
At the time of his appointment Halliday said he was “excited” to “spearhead the growth” of Campari’s brands in Australia.
“The business has grown impressively since establishing its Australian office around five years ago and I’m excited to have the opportunity to lead the company’s highly motivated team and to work closely with business partners to spearhead the growth of some of the world’s most loved spirits brands in this region.”
Halliday has held several roles within the FMCG and alcohol markets in both Australia and the UK. Before being appointed at Campari he was Diageo’s Commercial Director, Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific.
It is understood by TheShout that Franco Peroni, the Managing Director Business Unit Asia Pacific will be standing in until a replacement for Halliday is found.
TheShout has contacted Campari for comment and will publish an update once more information becomes available.
