Rose Scott is set to join Carlton & United Breweries as its new Vice President of Sales, starting next week.
Scott has mostly recently worked as the Managing Director of Summergate Fine Wines, a role she started in September 2016.
Speaking about the appointment, CUB’s CEO Peter Filipovic said: “We’re thrilled Rose has decided to join CUB. She will start next week.
“Rose has extensive industry experience marked with major achievements, including most recently leading major Chinese wine distributor Summergate Fine Wines, an EDG subsidiary. In these roles she’s earned a reputation as an inspirational leader who is results driven and, importantly for us, always respectful.
“She is aligned to CUB’s values in other ways too. This means setting bold visions and always having the consumer at the forefront of her thinking when considering any innovation.”
Scott will be responsible for the sales function in Australia and NZ. This includes field sales, key accounts, customer contact centre and trade marketing.
Filipovic added: “Part of being a good supplier is understanding customers’ objectives and motives when solving a problem. Rose understands these better than most having worked in senior roles for the biggest retailer in Australia.
“In addition, Rose worked on the supply side, including at Foster’s, before moving into retail earlier in her career. Her learnings from both side of the fence will help CUB achieve its vision over the next three to five years.”
