Loch Duart boss Alban Denton to retire
LOCH Duart managing director Alban Denton is to retire at the end of the year after five years in the post.
The board was informed of his decision several months ago, said the company, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
Loch Duart, which farms in Sutherland and the Uists, said Denton had led the company through the recovery and strengthening of the business, which has delivered a sustained period of investment and growth.
He had committed to the role for five years when he joined in 2015.
Denton said: ‘I have thoroughly enjoyed myself and the success we have had over the past five years.As managing director of a tremendous company, brand and team, it has been a privilege to be part of the story that is Loch Duart.’
Finance director Simon Maguire will act as interim managing director while the board is recruiting a successor.
