After almost five years, André de Almeida, Managing Director, Global Travel Retail, Loch Lomond Group, is leaving the company and the channel this month and starting a new position within the drinks industry.

One of his greatest professional accomplishments during his time at the company is expanding its scotch whisky brands including Glen Scotia and Loch Lomond into the channel for the first time.

In a post on his blog, Inside the Cask, André shares the news and wishes his team all the best.

“I look forward to my new challenge, but will be leaving Loch Lomond Group with a heavy heart as I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the company working with some wonderful people,” he says.

In the coming weeks, André looks forward to sharing more details.

His final day at Loch Lomond will be April 16.
