Pernod Ricard Appoints New Group General Counsel

Spirits giant Pernod Ricard has appointed Anne-Marie Poliquin as its new group general counsel, effective at the end of March 2021.

Poliquin is a Canadian citizen with 30 years of experience in the legal departments of various international groups, and the appointment sees her replacing Amanda Hamilton-Stanley in the role.

Poliquin graduated from the University of Montreal and Harvard Law School and became a member of the Quebec Bar. She began her career with a law firm before joining Valeo, and then the medical systems division of General Electric.

She joined Mars in 1998, working in the group's food and petcare division, where she carried out several major reorganisations and acquisition projects. She was promoted to the position of general counsel Europe before her appointment as general counsel for global petcare in Brussels, at which time she also became a member of the executive committee.

Career Change

After almost 20 years at Mars, Poliquin joined JDE Peet's in 2019, one of the global leaders in the manufacture and distribution of tea and coffee, as general counsel, legal and corporate affairs, in charge of legal, communications, and CSR, and based in Amsterdam.

In her new role, Poliquin will report to Alexandre Ricard and will be a member of the Pernod Ricard executive board and the group's executive committee, based in Paris.
