Moët Hennessy Shuffles Executives At Glenmorangie, Dom Perignon
Moët Hennessy has appointed Caspar MacRae as CEO of The Glenmorangie Company, which includes both the Glenmorangie and Ardbeg single malt Scotch whiskies. Currently global marketing and business development director, MacRae will assume the chief executive role on July 3, succeeding Thomas Moradpour, who is moving on to lead Moët Hennessy portfoliomate Dom Perignon Champagne.
Jonas Tåhlin, president and CEO of the spirits division at Moët Hennessy, noted that during his tenure Moradpour “has enabled the brands to flourish and grow, more than doubling their profits. I wish him success as he moves on within the LVMH family to Dom Pérignon. Caspar has already demonstrated his exceptional talent and leadership skills, and I have full confidence that the business will continue to thrive with him at the helm.”
Moradpour oversaw a doubling of Glenmorangie’s bottling capacity, among other expansion initiatives, as head of the distiller. In his current role, MacRae is credited with championing The Glenmorangie Co.’s e-commerce business, which has grown sevenfold since 2020. According to Impact Databank, Highland malt Glenmorangie had U.S. volume of 128,000 9-liter cases in 2022, while Ardbeg, from Islay, was at 41,000 cases.
