Campari Group shares fell and were temporarily halted Tuesday after the Italian liquor company said Chief Executive Officer Bob Kunze-Concewitz would retire in April of next year and be replaced by Matteo Fantacchiotti.

At 0756 GMT, shares were down 5.9% at EUR11.16.

Fantacchiotti, managing director of the company's Asia-Pacific region, will take over as CEO in April of 2024, Campari said. He has been appointed deputy CEO in the meantime.

Kunze-Concewitz will remain on the board as a non-executive director, Campari said. He has been with the maker of Campari, Skyy Vodka and Aperol, among other brands, for 16 years, the company said.
