PARIS (Reuters) – Remy Cointreau, the French spirits group controlled by the Heriard Dubreuil family, said on Friday it planned to appoint Marie-Amelie de Leusse to chair its board of directors as part of a generational handover between family members.

If shareholders approve the proposal at the annual meeting on July 21, de Leusse, 44, will replace current chairman Marc Heriard Dubreuil, 70.

“Following the chairmanships of Dominique Heriard Dubreuil, Francois Heriard Dubreuil and Marc Heriard Dubreuil, this appointment would be perfectly in keeping with the generational transition between members of the Heriard Dubreuil family on the board of directors,” the statement said.

De Leusse has served as vice-chair of the board since July 2019 and is deputy CEO of the family holding Andromede, Remy Cointreau’s controlling shareholder. She is the daughter of Dominique Heriard Dubreuil.
