Negociants NZ has announced that Clive Weston will retire as Managing Director from Negociants New Zealand on 28th May 2021, after more than 30 years with the company.
With his departure, Negociants has confirmed the following appointments:
On Monday 31st May, Andrew Parkinson will be appointed to the position of Managing Director, Negociants New Zealand, incorporating Nautilus Estate of Marlborough. Parkinson worked in the hospitality sector in Auckland and Wellington for many years before joining Negociants New Zealand as Fine Wine Manager more than 15 years ago.
Dean McHenry will be promoted and take over from Andrew Parkinson as General Manager, Negociants New Zealand (Domestic). McHenry’s career has included extensive trans-Tasman sales management experience with Brown Brothers and Taylor Brown.
A further announcement is set to be made with regards to the appointment of a National Sales Manager, to take over from McHenry.
“Personally, working with such a fine group of talented, enthusiastic, wine wise people, past and present, has been a great honour; we have a good number of long serving individuals in the team, as well as some who have made Negociants their workplace of choice in more recent years but the blend works well,” says Clive Weston.
“Increasingly, we have emphasised effective succession planning. It doesn’t always materialise but when it does, it’s very satisfying to be able to promote from within the business.
“I hope that this provides inspiration for the rest of the team but also for talented individuals contemplating future employer options within the trade.”
