Published:  21 June, 2010

United Wineries has appointed John Leech as commercial director to its UK team.

Leech comes from Boutinot (Meridian Wines), where he was responsible for the specialised Italian and Iberian division senior national accounts manager, looking after brands such as Italia.

He will join United Wineries on July 12, to head up the sales team that includes Nathan Last (ex-Gallo), Daniel Wilson (ex-Constellation) and Mark Roberts (ex-Pernod Ricard).

It will enable United Wineries to consolidate its position as the largest supplier of branded Spanish wines in the UK and to drive the Italian brands of the partnership with Trento-based Gruppo La-Vis.

Leech said: "United Wineries is a flexible, forward-thinking, market-driven organisation with a unique supply structure. It's a challenge I relish getting my teeth into and I look forward to working with some fantastic people and quality brands."
