Paul Schaafsma to leave Broadland

Broadland Wineries has announced that CEO Paul Schaafsma is to leave the company at the end of January to start his own business.

The surprising news broke today (15 January). Schaafsma has been at Broadland for just four months, joining in September last year after another sudden departure from Accolade Wines. Chairman Mark Lansley will take over as CEO.

Lansley commented: “We have enjoyed working with Paul during his four months at Broadland and we would like to thank him for his contribution. As he departs, it is important to say that Broadland’s strategy remains the same.

“We will continue our commitment to building our full portfolio of award-winning new and old world brands, to go alongside our BRC Grade AA+ private label offering. Accordingly, we will be adding a number of blue-chip brand builders to our team during the next few months.”

New marketing director Ian Anderson is reportedly leaving with Schaafsma. The nature of his new business is not yet known.
