Premium Branded Spirits Global Brand Owner

Attractive package to engage talent


This organisation is on the cusp of a new and exciting growth phase to double in size.

We lead the visit to the external market for this highly regarded, ambitious, global brand owner seeking fresh leadership talent to lead their next exciting phase of growth.

Under private ownership their team have created globally admired brand icons driving industry leading growth over the long term.  This drive to take the right brand building decisions for the long term sets them apart from their competition, who can be distracted by external shareholders to think more short term.  Their challenger mentality means they are agile and entrepreneurial, operating with the flair, energy and passion that comes from being free of the restrictive corporate straight-jacket worn by the industry giants. That is not to say this organisation is start-up, with global revenues in excess of £1bn.

Here in the UK their business now requires a Head of On-Trade & Prestige to focus efforts on an agenda that understands which key opportunities will deliver. Developing robust strategy, in tandem with teasing out sharp insights, will leverage brand propositions that ensure their ambitious but realistic growth potential is realised.   This role leads of team of 30, and is part of the executive commercial team where it reports to the newly appointed Commercial Director. Working closely with them, this role is a critical member of the executive team now focused on unlocking their latent potential.

The scope of this brief means robust UK On-Trade channel experience gained on respected premium BWS brands is a prerequisite, but most important will be your track record of delivery by engaging people behind your vision, to focus ambition with resources to create breakout performance.

The opportunity to be central to the success of this premium branded portfolio, and grow with their business, makes this position worth exploring further.

For an informal and discreet conversation please send your details to our retained Consultant.

Our client is an equal opportunities employer.
