Jonathan Yusen, Chairman of the PMA Board, has decided to leave William Grant & Sons for another opportunity in the US wine & spirits industry. With his departure in mid-October he will also be stepping down from his leadership role on the PMA Board.
Over the years, Jonathan has helped to shape PMA’s strategic direction as a world-class selling agency. He has partnered with the PMA leadership team in guiding the key changes that many of you have played such an instrumental role in implementing. Jonathan has been with the Company for 15 years working in a variety of roles across the business. He has also been a valued member of the Executive Board since 2013 and a champion of the Company’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion initiatives, in his role as Exec Board sponsor. Jonathan will be leaving the business in mid-October.
Thanks to a strong continuity plan, the PMA Board recently filled two seats from the ranks of our shareholders with the appointment of Heather Alper, Region Managing Director for North America at William Grant & Sons, and Tom Bené, CEO at Breakthru Beverage.
