Pernod Ricard has named Raja Banerji, formerly assistant vice president marketing at Pernod Ricard India, as its UK marketing director.
Banerji has been with the spirits giant since 2002 - aside from a one year stint at Beam Global Spirits & Wines from 2007 to 2008. Prior to that he worked for Bacardi.
Banerji has joined Pernod Ricard UK’s executive committee, reporting to managing director David Haworth.
Haworth said Banerji had “a wealth of experience across sales and marketing within the drinks industry in India” and he was “delighted to be welcoming him on-board at an exciting time for the business” as it looked to “continue driving momentum within wine and spirits”.
