Moët Hennessy UK marketing director Lorraine Morris is leaving the company amid a restructure of the drinks business. It is not known whether she has a job to go to.

Her departure also follows the appointment of a new managing director, David Meyers, at Moët Hennessy UK. Meyers joined the company three months ago, after moving from his post as president and chief executive of Rémy Amerique, part of Rémy-Cointreau. He replaced Malcolm Dunbar, who now runs Moët Hennessey’s European business.

Meyers is talking to a number of candidates as replacements for Morris.

From the beginning of next month, all LVMH Group-owned spirits and wine brands will be consolidated into Moët Hennessy. The premium drinks business will now include Veuve Clicquot, Krug and Cloudy Bay alongside its existing brand portfolio, which comprises Moët & Chandon, Dom Pérignon, Mercier and Hennessy.
