Remy Cointreau SA, the maker of Remy Martin cognac, said finance chief Frederic Pflanz will succeed Jean-Marie Laborde as chief executive officer.
Pflanz, who joined as finance director in 2010 after a previous career at L’Oreal SA (OR), will take the reins from October, Paris-based Remy said today in a statement. Since December, he has worked alongside Laborde as chief operating officer.
Laborde has been CEO of the distiller since 2004.
