Parkinson steps down as WineGB CEO

Published:  08 April, 2019

David Parkinson is to step down as chief executive officer of WineGB.

Parkinson will remain on the board as a non-executive director, with a specific brief to drive the industry’s strategy across government departments, MPs, regional and local councils and other related bodies.

He will also continue to be involved in long-term communications and marketing projects.

The decision to step down was made due to health reasons. WineGB said these changes will allow him to focus his time on these key areas.

WineGB’s vice chairman Peter Gladwin will step in to the role of non-executive managing director and will manage the organisation alongside chairman Simon Robinson in the short term.

“We are delighted that David is remaining with us,” said Robinson. “His political and strategic experience and contribution has seen WineGB as an organisation move forward significantly in the last twelve months.”
