International spirits company, Quintessential Brands, has announced the appointment of Jonathan Edge as Group HR Director and Roger Lowe as Chief Finance Officer.
Edge joins the company from Ideal Standard (UK & Ireland). He previously held senior positions at global FMCG companies including Nestlé and Imperial Tobacco.
the company said that Edge will play a vital role in shaping the company’s HR strategy as it looks to further optimise in line with its global ambitions in the years ahead.
Lowe, the group’s new chief finance officer, has been promoted from his previous position as CFO of the company’s UK operations.
He joined the company in January last year and has played an integral role in the development of the Group’s finance function to support its global growth strategy.
Warren Scott, CEO and Co-Founder of Quintessential Brands, said these appointments come at an exciting time for the business following its recent expansion into North America.
“Nearly eight years into the Quintessential Brands journey, we are now at a pivotal moment as we look to accelerate our global growth strategy,” Scott explained.
“We’ve seen phenomenal success in the UK where we have been at the forefront of the gin trend, and with the Dublin Liberties Distillery, we’ve shown that we’re a real contender in Irish Whiskey.”
“The next stage in Quintessential Brands Group’s development is to drive further international growth and both Jon and Roger will play important roles in making that happen,” he concluded.
