Edrington, the international premium spirits company, has announced a number of leadership changes at its Super Premium, Regional Power Brands and Global Travel Retail Divisions. The moves follow on the decision of Bill Farrar, Managing Director Super Premium, to leave Edrington in June 2017 to pursue new business interests.

Bill’s career with Edrington stretches back to 1989, since which time he has led marketing strategy for several of the world’s most successful spirit brands. He joined the Edrington board in 2003 and has overseen the rapid growth of The Macallan and the development of Edrington’s international distribution businesses. In his current role he has been at the forefront of the company’s innovation team and its fast-growing super premium spirit brands, including Highland Park single malt.

Bill Farrar.

Paul Ross will succeed Bill as Managing Director Super Premium, transferring from his current assignment as President of Edrington Americas. Paul is an experienced international leader who has built the Edrington Americas organisation and delivered exceptional growth during his assignment in New York. Paul will be succeeded as President of Edrington Americas by Chris Spalding, who was heavily involved in the creation of Edrington Americas and is currently Commercial Director, North America.

Edrington has also named Aristotelis ‘Tellis’ Baroutsis as Managing Director of the company’s Regional Power Brands business unit, which is responsible for The Famous Grouse and Cutty Sark blended Scotch whiskies and Brugal rum. Tellis joined Edrington as Managing Director of Edrington Nordics before transferring to Singapore to establish the company’s global travel retail business.

Igor Boyadjian replaces Tellis as Managing Director of Edrington Global Travel Retail in Singapore. Igor was co-owner of the Edrington Fix joint venture, based in Dubai, and brings a deep understanding of the travel retail business to his new role.
