Lanson’s Paul Beavis leaves after 20 years

Paul Beavis, managing director for Lanson UK and North America, announced he was to step down from the role at the end of December after 20 years with the Champagne house.

Beavis was responsible for growing new markets across Europe and Asia and defining the growth strategy of the Champagne house.

During his time at Lanson, Beavis has overseen the extension of Lanson’s exclusive partnership with the AELTC and is credited with maintaining the brand’s Royal Warrant and forming exclusive partnerships with the O2 Arena and other sporting associations.

Lanson’s president, François Van Aal, commented: “Paul has overseen the growth of the brand in the UK and key export territories and was instrumental in reinvigorating the brand and our key partners and sponsorships in the UK.

“He is leaving the company in a commanding position for which we are truly grateful. Paul will be leaving at the end of December to explore new opportunities.”
