Change at the top of Edrington: Ian Curle will retire

Scott McCroskie will be the new CEO of Edrington

After 15 years in office, Ian Curle will end his tenure as CEO of Edrington in March 2019. He worked for the company for a total of 32 years, starting in 1986 with the then subsidiary Lang Brothers. Curle accompanied and led Edrington on their way to the top position on the international spirits parquet.

Out of 900 employees, the worldwide team grew to 3,000 under Curle's leadership. New markets have been developed and partnerships have been established in Asia, America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Dominican Republic, the press release on the change of leadership reports. Macallan is the world's most expensive whiskey brand now, and Highland Park, Glenrothes and Famous Grouse are also outstanding. The grand finale was the opening of the new Macallan Distillery this year, with which Edrington has started a new era of its history. Future CEO Scott McCroskie has been working closely with Curle for 10 years. He is a member of Edrington's Board of Directors and Managing Director of Macallan, and so he is well prepared for the future role of CEO of Edrington, which he will take on April 1, 2019.
