FORMER CEO BACK AT HELM OF GRAND TOKAJ

0

Despite rumours to the contrary, Péter Szappanos has eventually resigned as CEO of Grand Tokaj  (formerly known as Tokaj Crown Estates), and his place has been taken by Gergely Goreczky, brought back on board following a reshuffle that began in late July. Mr Goreczky was first CEO at the state-run wine company until 1st February 2015, before Enikő Király's 10-month period of office. He is now part of a five-strong Board of Directors (BOD) that also includes Dereszla's estate manager László Kalocsai and Szent Tamás's senior winemaker István Szepsy Jnr. This latter fact suggests that the Tokaj region's leading producers are going to have more influence on how Hungary's only government-owned wine company is managed. President of the Tokaj Council of Wine Communities (CWC) Miklós Prácser retains his membership of the also completely overhauled Supervisory Board (SB), which is no longer in charge of approving major decisions of the BOD but has reverted to a 'classic' monitoring role, as was the case before 2013.
