Brockmans hires Guy Lawrence as managing director
The Brockmans premium gin company has appointed former Mast-Jägermeister and Russian Standard Vodka executive Guy Lawrence to the newly created role of managing director.
The news follows the appointment in October of former Diageo chief executive Paul Walsh to Brockmans’ advisory board.
The company is about to embark on a new five-year plan as it looks to expand and double sales.
Due to take up his position in January, Lawrence was previously chief executive of Mast-Jägermeister UK, and region vice president for Latin America. Prior to that, he was European managing director of Russian Standard Vodka.
Neil Everitt, Brockmans’ founder, said: “Guy is a stellar addition to the team, and attracting talent of his calibre and experience shows what an exciting journey Brockmans is on. Guy has worked with some of the world’s best known spirits brands and overseen their rapid growth trajectories and the team are very excited to start working with him.”
