Wine Australia's Yvonne May takes extended leave over illness

Published:  07 April, 2014

Wine Australia's European director Yvonne May is taking extended leave from the generic body to receive treatment for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia.

May will be undergoing intensive treatment over the next couple of months.

A statement from Wine Australia read: "It is our understanding that this diagnosis and treatment come at the early stages of the cancer. She is in very good hands and receiving the best possible care, and is said to be in good spirits and fighting form."

In the interim, James Gosper, Wine Australia's general manager for market development, will oversee Wine Australia's operations in the UK, Ireland and Europe, working with the body's London-based team.
