Woolworths Limited Group has appointed Tim Rice its new head of wine – BWS.
The appointment was an internal one, with Rice making the move from Dan Murphy’s, where he was head of beer. Prior to that, he was the business manager of wine for Dan Murphy’s. Rice has worked for Woolworths Limited Group in different capacities for 19 years, bringing extensive knowledge into his new role in the BWS division.
Rice will report directly to Adam Fry, head of merchandising for BWS. Rose Scott, general manager of merchandising and marketing for Woolworths Limited Group, is pleased to have Rice join the BWS division.
“The experience Tim brings in buying and operations will be a great asset to the BWS team as we continue to deliver our strategy as the number one liquor retailer in Australia," Scott said.
Rice will begin his new role in February 2016. A replacement for his outgoing role as head of beer – Dan Murphy’s is still being sought.
