AFL identity Steven Trigg, former CEO of the Adelaide Crows and Carlton, has joined the Randall Wine Group as managing director, The Advertiser has confirmed.
Owner Warren Randall has relinquished the position to pursue international export markets as executive chairman.
The Randall Wine Group owns Seppeltsfield and numerous other wine interests including Quelltaler, Ryecroft, Tinlins and the largest premium private vineyard holdings in Australia.
WBM e-bulletin The Week That Was published a rumour two weeks ago that Trigg was headed to Seppeltsfield.
“This will allow me time to get to New Zealand, California, China and Europe to pursue other strategic opportunities,” Randall told The Advertiser.
Trigg told the newspaper, “To work alongside Warren, with his knowledge and track record, is a privilege really.”
