The Paris-headquartered company has announced that Thomas Moradpour, currently international marketing director at Hennessy, is to succeed Marc Hoellinger in the role. Before taking on his post at Hennessy, Mr Moradpour held marketing and leadership roles at Carlsberg, PepsiCo and L’Oreal.

Mr Hoellinger has led The Glenmorangie Company, which as well as its eponymous malt produces Ardbeg Islay whisky, for the last five years. He is moving to a new role with Moet Hennessy, the wines and spirits division of LVMH, as international director of Champagne Houses Moet & Chandon and Dom Perignon.

Philippe Schaus, CEO of Moët Hennessy, said: “I am delighted to see Marc appointed to a new key role for two of our most famous brands, Moët & Chandon and Dom Pérignon, and Thomas to succeed him as president and CEO of The Glenmorangie Company. These two talented individuals have much to offer the Moët Hennessy portfolio and business strategy. With significant investments over the coming years, The Glenmorangie Company is committed to meeting increasing consumer demand for its wonderful whiskies.”
