POYNTER APPOINTED NEW GM AT ROCKBURN WINES

Rockburn Wines has appointed Rebecca Poynter as their new general manager, following the resignation of Paul Donaghy.

Poynter returns to New Zealand after ten years spent in Australia. Over the last six years, she has held the position of general manager for Australian winery business Bimbadgen. Prior to this role, she has been working with Villa Maria as their Sydney-based market manager for Australia and Asia.

Poynter originally joined Villa Maria in 1995 and left it for just two years in the early 2000s to develop her marketing skills at Fosters.
