Liquorland is one of three liquor retail brands owned by Foodstuffs. The other two are Henry’s Beer Wine & Spirits and Duffy & Finn’s. Liquorland chairman Steve Anderson says Chemaly has been with Foodstuffs for more than 10 years and was “intimately involved” in its purchase of Liquorland from DB.
Gibson will begin handing over the position to Chemaly prior to Chemaly’s commencement date on June 29. Anderson says Chemaly will remain CEO of Liquorland until mid-2016, when a longer-term candidate will be found.
