Head of Distribution leaves Renaissance

20 Aug 2010

Long time staffer Bronwyn Sinclair is departing local distributor Renaissance. Sinclair was best known for her role running the Apple division, but had more recently taken on the role of Chief Distribution Officer.

Richard Webb, CEO of Renaissance said: "Bronwyn has played a pivotal role in completing the repositioning and structural change of our products business and we are extremely grateful for her contribution.  During her career with Renaissance, Bronwyn has made a significant contribution to the success of the company and has held a number of senior roles.

"Over the past eight months we have delivered a number of new products to the market. During the next few months Warwick Grey, our new Chief Marketing Officer, and I will introduce a number of new strategic initiatives, which will include the new brand roll out, the new retail and online concept stores, and some exciting new products," said Webb.

"I have particularly enjoyed developing the new product group structure," said Sinclair. "The product business has grown and matured significantly over the last year and this maturity means it’s a good time for me to make a move."

This well timed (Friday 5pm) announcement tops off a tough few months of key executive resignations.
