Following Robinson’s departure, Emily Rae will assume the position of finance director at the firm.

Robinson has been with the company for three-and-a-half years.

Lizzy Rudd, executive chairman of Berry Bros & Rudd, said: “An active member of the board and leadership team, Chris has been instrumental in shaping the business for long-term growth, including negotiating the sale of The Glenrothes brand, leading the strategy behind the investment in Hotaling and Co, and driving our IT business transformation.

“Chris has also developed a high quality and capable finance team and we are delighted that Emily Rae, who has been working closely with Chris over the past three years, will assume the role of finance director upon his departure.

“Chris will be greatly missed and we wish him every success in his future endeavours.”

In January this year, Dan Jago stepped down as CEO of Berry Bros & Rudd after three years.

In March, the spirits firm called off its search for a new CEO and confirmed Lizzy Rudd would continue to lead the business as executive chairman.
