Berry Bros & Rudd CEO Dan Jago To Step Down
The chief executive of wine merchants Berry Bros & Rudd, Dan Jago, has announced that he is stepping down from the business.
Jago, who previously headed up Tesco's beer, wine and spirits division before joining Berry Bros & Rudd in 2015, will be replaced on an interim basis by executive chairman Lizzy Rudd, until a new CEO can be found.
Commenting on Jago's departure, Rudd said, “Over the last three years Dan Jago has made an extremely important contribution at Berry Bros & Rudd, introducing significant operational and commercial initiatives that have made us a much stronger organisation.
“With Dan having completed what he set out to achieve, the Board and Dan have agreed that the time is now right for new leadership to guide the company through the next phase of growth.”
Jago, who also previously held the role of joint managing director at Bibendum, said that leading Berry Bros & Rudd for the past three and a half years has been a "tremendous honour. We have achieved an enormous amount in that time and I am grateful to everyone in the business for their hard work and commitment. I wish Berry Bros & Rudd all the very best in the years ahead.”
