Top people moves in drinks: April

Rodolphe Lameyse appointed new Vinexpo CEO

Vinexpo appointed Rodolphe Lameyse as its new CEO last month, almost a year after the departure of Guillaume Deglise last April.

Lameyse, who will take up his role on 16 April, is well versed in organising international trade events.

Before joining Vinexpo he was based in Singapore as the manager of Asia’s largest show dedicated to the food, beverage and hotel industry – Food & Hotel Asia.

Patrick Seguin, president of Bordeaux Gironde Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCIBG), and president of Vinexpo Group, said: “His expertise in trade shows and his understanding of key markets, particularly those in Asia where a lot of new trends are emerging, will help kick-start Vinexpo group’s international expansion.”

Lameyse added: “Vinexpo has grown thanks to the quality of the offer available at each of its shows, the relevance of its content and the return on investment it generates. We’ll continue to expand Vinexpo shows together, in France and internationally, and provide our customers with solutions, in order to cement our role as the global leader for all players in the international wine and spirits sector.”
