Search continues for NZ European head

New Zealand Wine Growers is still on the hunt for a new European marketing manager, following the departure of David Cox this summer.

The organisation, which represents New Zealand’s grape growers and wineries to provide a global marketing platform for New Zealand wine, is working with recruitment firm Match Consultants to find the right candidate.

Describing Europe as “a huge success story for New Zealand wine with sales almost tripling over the last 10 years to $350 million,” Philip Gregan, CEO of New Zealand Winegrowers, added: “We need a focused candidate in this pivotal role to drive continued strong growth.“

Outlining the requirements of the role, Match Consultants’ managing director Christian Hughes, explained: “We’re looking for someone with strong contacts right across Europe. The marketing manager will be responsible for working with New Zealand Trade and Enterprise to drive a joint, multi-million dollar programme to develop the New Zealand wine brand.

“This demanding role will involve continual interaction with the wineries and their agents and distributors in Europe, in addition to the wider trade and media, to ensure that returns are maximised.”
