Dan Townsend, formerly managing director for Maison Louis Latour Agencies, has been appointed general manager for the UK and Ireland. He will take up his new position on January 4 next year.

There are two ads: one focuses on a cricket promotion to win VIP trips to the Ashes, while the other features the latest launches, Yellow Label Sparkling Rosť and the premium Silver Label range.
