New Fever-Tree leadership appointment

Premium mixer company Fever-Tree has announced its first leadership appointment in New Zealand.

Andre Browne has stepped into the newly-created role of Country Manager, New Zealand, with responsibility for building brand awareness and solidifying the brand’s strong footprint across national and regional grocery retailers while continuing to develop strategic partnerships with grocery, traditional liquor and on-premise customers.

Andy Gaunt, Managing Director ANZ Fever-Tree says Andre’s appointment is a milestone hire for Fever-Tree in New Zealand.

“Andre joins us at an exciting moment as we look to increase our presence and growth in the New Zealand market,” he says.

“His extensive FMCG brand experience alongside his proven ability to build strong relationships makes him an ideal choice for this important role and an excellent fit with the Fever-Tree team.”

After two years working as Global Senior Brand Manager for boutique London gin brand, Sipsmith, Andre more recently worked at Asahi where he managed its RTD portfolio in New Zealand.

“Working in the UK during the gin and tonic boom, Fever-Tree impressed me not only with its unrelenting pursuit to find the best ingredients in the world but the personal touch and involvement the owners had in developing new products,” he says.

“Fever-Tree has an expanding and versatile product portfolio outside tonics, such as ginger, sodas and cola to suit every mixing occasion, so I’m excited about the opportunities ahead.”
