A NEW man is taking the helm as Glenmorangie Company president after a record-breaking five years overseen by his predecessor.

President and CEO Thomas Moradpour is moving on to take the lead at prestigious champagne brand Dom Pérignon, also part of LVMH.

He will be succeeded in post by Caspar MacRae, currently global marketing and business development director, from July 3.

The company, which owns Glenmorangie Highland single malt Scotch whisky and Ardbeg Islay single malt Scotch whisky, says it has thrived under Moradpour's leadership.

Since he joined in 2018, it has more than doubled profits, delivering unprecedented year-on-year growth each year. Amidst global instability, he has been credited with creating a stronger, more sustainable business, championing innovation and successfully executing ambitious expansion plans.

During his time in charge the team launched Glenmorangie’s ground-breaking innovation distillery and oversaw the expansion of Ardbeg Distillery.

It was also a period when Glenmorangie’s boutique hotel was transformed and a hotel purchased near Ardbeg.

MacRae, who has worked hand-in-hand with Moradpour, says he is committed to continuing the company’s upward trajectory in line with its long-term vision for growth.

Jonas Tåhlin, president and CEO of the spirits division at Moët Hennessy, the wine and spirits arm of LVMH, said: “Congratulations to Thomas for his achievements at Glenmorangie and Ardbeg.Driving innovation and excellence, he has enabled the brands to flourish and grow, more than doubling their profits.

"I wish him success as he moves on within the LVMH family to Dom Pérignon. Caspar has already demonstrated his exceptional talent and leadership skills, and I have full confidence that the business will continue to thrive with him at the helm.”

MacRae said: “I have always dreamed of leading brands as renowned as Glenmorangie and Ardbeg, so I am thrilled to take the baton from Thomas. I look forward to working with the teams here in Scotland and around the world as we continue on our mission to ensure the success of our brands, our workforce and the communities around our distilleries, long into the future.”
