TORONTO, Aug. 28, 2018 /CNW/ - Corby Spirit and Wine Limited's ("Corby" or the "Company") (TSX: CSW.A, CSW.B) Board of Directors announced today that Antonio Sanchez has resigned as Vice President, Chief Financial Officer of Corby, effective September 1, 2018 to accept a position with Pernod Ricard S.A. as Senior Vice President, Global Finance Digital Transformation. Effective October 1, 2018, Mr. Edward Mayle has been appointed as Mr. Sanchez's successor as Vice-President, Chief Financial Officer of Corby and also as a Corby director, filling the vacancy created by Mr. Sanchez's departure.

Edward Mayle brings an abundance of financial knowledge to Corby. He joins the Company from Pernod Ricard UK where he was most recently Finance Director, building on prior finance international roles in the organization. Mr. Sanchez will assist Mr. Mayle with his transition into his new role in the months ahead.

"Mr. Mayle is an experienced financial executive who brings a wealth of relevant industry knowledge. We are very excited to welcome him to the Corby team," said Patrick O'Driscoll, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

During Mr. Sanchez's tenure at Corby, the Company achieved several milestones, including two strategic acquisitions, a restructured export model for certain key brands in the United States and United Kingdom, as well as the implementation of several efficiency-promoting measures within the sales and finance functions.

"Antonio has made an immense contribution in his time as CFO," continued O'Driscoll. "He has been a valuable member of the executive management team and I wish him all the best in his new role."

George McCarthy, Chairman of Corby's Board of Directors said, "I am extremely pleased that we found a new finance talent in Edward and I look forward to working with him to deliver future success at Corby."
