Edrington has given roles to six new executives in its wholly-owned US sales, marketing and distribution arm, Edrington Americas, which launched in May last year.

Michael Misiorski has been named executive vice president and chief financial officer of the firm having recently served as CFO of Bacardi North America and Stoli Group USA.

Christopher Spalding has been promoted to the new role of senior vice president and commercial director, North America, having most recently served as vice president division manager, Northeast USA.

Jim Brennan has been promoted to senior vice president and marketing director, North America, from his previous position as vice president of Edrington Brands.

For the Latin America and travel retail division, Juan Gentile has been promoted to vice president and regional director.

Meanwhile, Tracy Genesen has been appointed general counsel of Edrington Americas and Nadege Dethy has been promoted to human resources director.

With brands like Brugal rum and The Macallan Scotch whisky “already extremely popular” in the US, Edrington launched Edrington Americas to control distribution of the group’s leading brands in the market.

The subsidiary assumed control of the group’s distribution in the US following the termination of its agreement with Rémy Cointreau USA in March last year.

Edrington Americas is led by CEO Paul Ross.
