Glenmorangie names new president

Paul Skipworth
EDINBURGH, Scotland -- After a 14-year run as president and marketing director of the Glenmorangie Company, Paul Neep is moving to the non-executive chairman slot. He is being succeeded by Paul Skipworth.

The distiller, owned by French luxury goods giant Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy, produces Glenmorangie Single Highland malt whisky and Ardbeg Single Islay malt. It left the blended whisky field in 2009.

Skipworth will be charged with charting the company's further efforts to increase market share. Last year, Glenmorangie opened a new bottling facility at the Alba Campus in Livingston, Scotland

The plant was built to allow for an increase in production to meet future demand for premium single malt whisky in such markets such as Asia, Europe and the U.S.

"Going forward, we are planning further investment in advertising and promotions to build our brands in key markets," Skipworth said. "We will continue to benefit from the strong global distribution network of Moet Hennessy."
