PLB Wines appoints new marketing manager

Published:  23 July, 2008

WSET qualified Amanda Walker (pictured) has been appointed as the new marketing manager for PLB Wines.

Walker, who replaces Claire Summersby who left the company earlier this year, has over six years experience as a marketer and joins PLB from Reckitt Benckiser.

Peter Darbyshire, PLB managing director, commented on the appointment.

"We are delighted that Amanda is joining the team and feel very strongly that her wealth of experience in the FMCG arena will prove invaluable.

"She has already obtained her WSET Advanced Certificate, so this is a perfect opportunity to combine her interest in wine with our intention to become more marketing focused," he added.

PLB has been operating since 1982 and is now one of the UK's largest suppliers to the muliple trade - its brands include Spier, Via Ventisquero and Chileno.
