After nearly 16 years of service to the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States (DISCUS) and to the spirits industry, Dr. Peter H. Cressy announced to the DISCUS Board of Directors at its annual meeting last week his desire to step down as CEO at the end of 2015. “It has been a great privilege to be CEO of the Distilled Spirits Council and to have worked with such outstanding member companies whose commitment to both social responsibility and market modernization has been remarkable,” Cressy said. A search committee headed up by DISCUS Vice Chairman and Moët Hennessy USA CEO Jim Clerkin, and including Cressy, will begin a national search in the near future.
