Michelle Brampton is taking over as the new managing director for Treasury Wine Estates’ UK and European business from November 1.

She will replace Tom King, who has been promoted to chief operating officer for Asia after spending 19 months heading up TWE’s Twickenham office.

Brampton has been with the business since 2002, when she became financial planning controller at Southcorp Wines.

Foster’s took over Southcorp in 2006, and she became commercial operations and business development controller at the firm.

Treasury Wine Estates was demerged from Foster’s in 2011 and Brampton was promoted to commercial finance director at TWE two years later.

She then served as chief finance officer for Europe and became commercial director just two months ago, and now she finds herself in the top job at one of the UK’s largest wine suppliers, with a portfolio including Wolf Blass, Lindemann’s, Penfold, Beringer and Blossom Hill.
