Negociants New Zealand is pleased to announce the appointment of Martin McManus to the position of General Manager, Negociants New Zealand (Domestic), with effect from Tuesday 5th January 2016. Martin will report to Clive Weston, Managing Director for Negociants NZ.
In Martin’s early career, he succeeded in various marketing oriented positions. He subsequently undertook a number of senior roles within Sony New Zealand and these resulted in successive promotions, ultimately taking him to Country Manager, Sony New Zealand and Marketing Director, Sony Australia and New Zealand.
Among Martin’s strengths, which he will shortly bring to Negociants NZ, are his leadership ability, business planning, financial planning, customer and business partner focus and team development, as well as broad and effective organisational skills. Whilst not yet a wine industry specialist per se, Martin is certainly enthusiastic about the category and the role that Negociants NZ plays within it and he very much believes in New Zealand’s great wine and food culture.
