Steve Daniel, Oddbins' high-profile marketing and buying director, is to leave the company after 16 years. He will continue to work with Oddbins as a consultant, but will not be working in the Wimbledon office after 17 April. Daniel plans to take up some new challenges within the wine industry', possibly on the production side, according to a company spokeswoman. Oddbins will not be appointing a replacement for Daniel. His buying responsibilities will be divided between Tony Allen (California, Chile and Argentina) and Andy Vine (Greece). Lynne Coyle has already taken over as buyer of regional French wines. Oddbins' managing director, Gilles Le Besnerais, praised Daniel for his outstanding contribution' to the company. Daniel said, Oddbins has been a fantastic place to work and I have felt privileged to be part of it for so long. I am extremely keen to focus more on the production/marketing side of things and feel now is the time to take up some new challenges'.
