Brockmans, the fast-growing super-premium gin business, has just appointed former Mast-Jägermeister and Russian Standard Vodka executive Guy Lawrence to the newly created role of managing director.
This announcement follows the appointment of drinks industry veteran and former Diageo Chief Executive Paul Walsh in October, as Brockman seeks to bring additional experience and operational expertise to support the next leg of growth.
“Guy is a stellar addition to the team, and attracting talent of his caliber and experience shows what an exciting journey Brockmans is on,” says Brockmans founder, Neil Everitt. “Guy has worked with some of the world’s best-known spirit brands and overseen their rapid growth trajectories, and the team is very excited to start working with him.”
Mr. Lawrence joins Brockmans team on January 13, 2020, and will focus on the company’s international expansion methods. Brockmans, which is already sold in 50 countries, is working on expanding its geographical footprint in the United States in 2020.
