PERNOD RICARD USA: PAUL DUFFY
PAUL DUFFY has been appointed as Chairman and CEO. He replaces ALAIN BARBET, who has been promoted to Chairman and CEO of Pernod Ricard Americas. Both appointments were made by the Group Executive Committee of parent company Pernod Ricard SA.
Duffy most recently was CEO and Chairman of the Pernod Ricard brand-owning company Irish Distillers, where he has overseen the successful development of the Irish business and of Jameson Irish Whiskey.
Barbet will be responsible for all of Pernod Ricard’s distributing companies in both North and South America. Since assuming the leadership of Pernod Ricard USA in 2OO5, Barbet led the successful post-acquisition integration of the former Allied Domecq brands and employees.
