Returning to the field of alcohol and marketing after a one and a half year break is Amy Darvill, recently appointed as the Marketing Director at Accolade Wines for Australia and New Zealand.
Amy brings with her more than 11 years of industry and marketing experience from her time as Brand Director and Head of Corporate Strategy at Lion Nathan. Beyond leading a portfolio of some of Australia’s largest beer brands such as XXXX, Tooheys, Hahn, James Squire and James Boag, Amy was also in charge of Lion’s multi-site hospitality venues, a responsibility that will translate seamlessly to her future work with Accolade’s cellar door teams.
Parting ways with Lion in March 2022, Darvill has returned to the alcohol space after a year and a half in leadership at L.E.K Consulting, where she was responsible for developing growth strategies with clients.
“Amy is a great leader, renowned for creating and growing high calibre teams, and has a deep passion for the industry. We are excited about the positive energy and knowledge she will bring to our Commercial and Leadership Teams,” said Andrew Clarke, Managing Director ANZ.
“Here at Accolade, we’re constantly aiming to build and attract the best and most talented team possible, in all areas of our business, and Amy’s joining us is another brilliant example.”
