Gusbourne makes three senior appointments
English wine producer Gusbourne has promoted its chief winemaker to chief executive officer in a raft of senior board appointments. Charlie Holland, who has been head winemaker at the Kent-based estate since 2013 after four years heading up winemaking at rival producer Ridgeview, will take on the CEO role in addition to his new role as chief winemaker. An alumnus of Plumpton College, Holland has also worked as winemaker in vineyards in France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand and California. Holland will manage the day to day running of the business in conjunction with newly promoted chief operating officer Jon Pollard, who has also been promoted to chief vineyard manager in what the company describes as a “highly collaborative and relatively flat organization”.
