Rémy Cointreau Appoints Marc Hériard Dubreuil As Chairman
French drinks giant Rémy Cointreau has announced the appointment of Marc Hériard Dubreuil as its new chairman, effective from 1 October.
Hériard Dubreuil succeeds his brother, Francois Hériard Dubreuil, who has been appointed vice-chairman of the board of directors and member of the audit finance committee.
Marc Hériard Dubreuil has been chief executive of Andromede, the holding company of Rémy Cointreau and Oeneo, since 1984. He has served as chairman of Rémy Martin and Rémy & Associés, and he was CEO of Rémy Cointreau from 1990 to 2000.
He said that the new appointment "illustrates and confirms the family's commitment to the group's strategy to create value and ambition to become the world leader in exceptional spirits".
In July, the group posted organic growth of 8% in the first quarter of its financial year, driven by a strong performance by its group brands, including Rémy Martin, Cointreau, Metaxa, the Botanist gin and Mount Gay rum.
