Southcorp Wines Europe has appointed Ian Tottman, Pernod Ricard UK's commercial director, to the position of vice president sales, United Kingdom. Tottman will be responsible for all aspects of the UK sales team and will assume direct responsibility for the three core sales channels of grocery, specialist and on-trade. The three current channel managers, Rob Turvey (grocery), Richard Leaver (specialist) and Mark Kears (on-trade) will report to Tottman, who in turn will report directly to Mario Micheli, president of Southcorp Europe, Middle East & Africa. The increased size and complexity of the Southcorp business within the UK, and the continuing growth and success of our three core brands, Penfolds, Rosemount and Lindemans, warrants the appointment of an individual of Ian Tottman's calibre and experience,' said Micheli. This will be a challenging role and I believe that Ian will be able to contribute significantly to our business, delivering both short-term strategic goals and long-term vision.'
