Wine Importers has made changes to its management team as the company looks to the future.
The Livingston-based wine merchant, part of the Murray Capital group, has appointed Neil Renton as managing director.
The former sales director replaces Gordon White, who will remain a director before retiring at the end of this year after 36 years with the business.
Graeme Broom is promoted to Director of Wines and joins the management team. He spent three years leading a project to remodel the company’s wine portfolio.
Gordon Nicol also joins the firm as C&C Group Finance and Operations Director, where he was an on-trade finance business partner. He will be responsible for distribution and financial accounting.
Keith Murray, Executive Chairman of Wine Importers, said, “Our scale and agility has allowed us to perform well in the face of challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic and supply chain issues.
“The Wine Importers team take great pride in their extensive knowledge and commitment to personal service, and we look forward to supporting the hospitality industry after a period of turbulence and uncertainty – we anticipate unprecedented demand to as the economy reopens.
“Continuity was our priority as we looked to the future and the appointments we made ahead of Gordon White’s well-deserved retirement mean we are continuing our mission to be Scotland’s most trusted wine merchant with confidence and optimism.”
Wine Importers was established in 1975 to meet a growing demand for interesting wines. The company now supplies hotels, restaurants, conference centers, major sporting events, bars and cafes.
