Spadel UK, producer of Welsh natural mineral water brand Brecon Carreg, has promoted national sales manager Liz Sherry to general manager.

Sherry continues to manage sales but will take on responsibility for driving the business forward. She replaces Pierre de Winter, who has retired.

Sherry said 2006 had been a successful year for the company and that it was poised for another good year.

"I am confident I have a good grasp of our business and the position of Spadel UK's water brands," she said. Sherry joined Spadel in 2002 from Hall and Woodhouse, where she was trade sector manager.
