September 25, 2013 – The president of Edinburgh-based Glenmorangie PLC, Paul Skipworth, has taken a leave of absence from the LVMH-owned whisky company for personal reasons. Skipworth became president and managing director in 2011 when Paul Neep retired, and has overseen significant sales growth worldwide for both Glenmorangie and Ardbeg single malts.

Marc Hoellinger has been named acting president, and will continue to serve as marketing strategy director at Moët Hennessey while overseeing operations at Glenmorangie. He served as the unit’s marketing director under Skipworth for three years before being named to his present position.
