NEW YORK -- July 1, 2013

In a move aimed at establishing recognized leadership among fast-moving
consumer goods companies, Pernod Ricard USA, the premium spirits and wine
company in the U.S., has announced a reorganization and expansion of its
Spirits Marketing team, effective July 1, 2013.

The revamped group is designed to further enhance the existing momentum behind
the company’s key spirits brands, while capitalizing on such key growth
drivers as innovation, multicultural marketing and digital media. The team
will be led by Pierre Berard, who joins Pernod Ricard USA from Pernod Ricard
China, where he served as Director, Marketing. Berard achieved excellent
results in that role through strategic brand leadership, value creation, and
the delivery of insightful, emotionally engaging ideas that converted
consumers into brand advocates.

Bryan Fry, President and CEO, Pernod Ricard USA, said the expanded Marketing
team “will reinforce our two greatest assets, our brands and people, by
ensuring that we have the right resources, organized in the right way, to
continue to build outstanding, desirable, premium spirits brands and achieve
our strong growth objectives.”

Berard said he is confident that the enhanced team – which will include new
appointees from both inside and outside the company and industry – will
position Pernod Ricard USA for continued good performance. “Our success is
based not only on our exceptional portfolio of leading premium brands, but
also on the leadership ambition shared by our passionate, creative and diverse
team,” Berard said. “When you add in the quality of our leaders, and Pernod
Ricard’s strong reputation for demonstrating our values – entrepreneurship,
mutual trust and a strong sense of ethics – in everything we do, it’s clear
that our expanded Marketing organization will be a great place to work.” Job
