Dubreuil To Step Down As Rémy Cointrea Chariman

Dominique Hériard Dubreuil has announced that she will resign as chairman of Rémy Cointreau at the end of 2012. The announcement was made at the company’s combined general meeting, and Dubreuil has recommended that her brother be appointed by the Board of Directors in her place.
Speaking on the matter, Dubreuil said, “I would be delighted if François Heriard Dubreuil could provide continuity and strengthen our family’s involvement in the strategic direction of the Rémy Cointreau Group and its teams, both in France and internationally.”
The French drinks company was founded in 1724 and has remained a family business. Strong growth in Asia has contributed to the 18 per cent increase in the group’s turnover for the six months ending 30 September 2011, of €474.9 million, with an operating profit of €162 million.
The company’s UK subsidiary last week finalised a deal to buy premium Scotch whisky, Bruichladdich, the Islay single malt distiller for £58 million. (30 Jul)
