Remy picks third md in four months

Remy UK has moved non-executive chairman Sir Jeremy Black to managing director. He is the third person to fill the post since April.

Black replaces Paul Mills, who left the drinks company’s head office in Paris three weeks ago (MW August 11).

Remy has also confirmed the appointment of former sales director Peter Raycraft as UK commercial director. He will be responsible for sales and some aspects of marketing.

There has been no announcement of a marketing director to replace Dominic Ebery, who left at the beginning of this month to join retail group Facia (MW July 7). The company says it is still “examining the overall marketing structure”. Lynda Baldwin becomes finance director.

This is the company’s third management shake-up this year. Paul Mills became managing director of the UK business after UK managing director Mick McDonough was moved sideways in April to head Remy Ireland (MW April 17).
