New role for wine industry big gun

Former Yalumba chairman and managing director Nick Waterman has popped up on a new wine industry role: as a board member and chairman for The Usual Suspects Collective.

Waterman recently retired from Yalumba/Hill Smith Family Vineyards after over seven years in the top job, but has now joined the Hesketh family's group, which includes labels like Hesketh, Ox Hardy, St John's Road, Miss Kilm, Barratt, Parker Coonawarra Estate, Vickery and The Usual Suspects.

Waterman held key roles within Yalumba/Samuel Smith & Son dating back to 2003, including being GM of distributors Negociants.

"Nick brings a wealth of wine industry knowledge and experience to the Usual Suspects business, and is charged with overseeing strategy as well as challenging and supporting the executive team and wider business," group managing director Jonathon Hesketh said in a statement.

"He will add an enormous amount of value and is widely and universally respected in the industry. But more importantly, Nick is a great cultural fit."
