News Alert: Rémy CEO Pflanz Resigns After Three Months, As François Hériard Dubreuil Assumes Post

January 2, 2014

Just three months after becoming CEO of Rémy Cointreau, Frédéric Pflanz has resigned from the post for what the company says are personal reasons. Rémy Cointreau chairman, François Hériard Dubreuil has agreed to assume the CEO position in a transitional role.

Pflanz succeeded Jean-Marie Laborde as CEO of Rémy Cointreau on October 1, 2013, after joining the Paris-based drinks marketer as its CFO in 2010. Prior to that, he spent more than a decade at L’Oreal, where he worked as a controller, regional CFO and, lastly, director of finance and controlling. Pflanz added the role of COO in December 2012, at which time Shanken News Daily reported that he was Laborde’s likely successor. Pflanz will remain with Rémy, and is taking on the role of development director.
