Martin McManus is appointed to the newly created position of General Manager for the Negociants New Zealand domestic distribution business, effective January 2016.
In Martin’s early career, he was involved in various marketing roles. He subsequently undertook a number of senior positions within Sony New Zealand, ultimately taking him to Country Manager as well as Marketing Director, Sony Australia and New Zealand.
Clive Weston, Managing Director, Negociants New Zealand says: “The Company will benefit hugely from Martin’s considerable commercial experience, leadership ability and business acumen.
There is significant wine knowledge and expertise within the existing team at Negociants and Martin is certainly enthusiastic about the category and the role that Negociants New Zealand plays within it. He is a firm believer in New Zealand’s great wine and food culture and this augurs well for a specialist Fine Wine business such as Negociants.
I know that Martin looks forward to adding value both to Negociants New Zealand and to its customers and I am fully confident that he will do just that. We are delighted that Martin has come on board.”
