NEW YORK, NY (December 31, 2015)—Today, Moët & Chandon, the official champagne of New Year’s Eve in New York’s Times Square, will join Interbrand, the world’s leading brand consultancy, to ring the closing bell at the prestigious New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and commemorate 2015 in style.
Together, leaders from the two organizations will toast the traders of the NYSE, officially welcoming Moët & Chandon’s new President, Renaud Butel, and celebrate Moët & Chandon’s recognition as one of Interbrand’s 100 Best Global Brands.
“We are so pleased to be recognized by Interbrand as one of the Best Global Brands of 2015,” said Renaud Butel, Vice President, Moët & Chandon USA. “There is no better way to celebrate the year’s success than toasting this evening at both the New York Stock Exchange and Times Square. Being part of these two important moments highlights the perfect pairing between Moët and New Year’s Eve.”
This past October, Interbrand released its 16th annual Best Global Brands report—a report that annually identifies the 100 most valuable global brands. Moët & Chandon entered the ranking at #99, with a brand value of USD $4.13 billion. This major milestone for Moët & Chandon is a testament to the house’s renowned prestige and ringing the closing bell is a tribute. It is fitting pairing of the world’s most popular champagne, Moët & Chandon, and New Year’s Eve celebrations in New York City and across the world.
“It is my distinct pleasure to raise a glass alongside our friends at Moët & Chandon as they celebrate the end of a successful 2015 and welcome Renaud Butel to their leadership team,” noted Jez Frampton, Interbrand’s Global CEO. “Despite being a 273-year-old brand, Moët & Chandon has remained highly innovative, continually produces new products, and connects with millennial consumers in authentic and relevant ways. I look forward to seeing all that this storied brand achieves in 2016 and beyond.”
Moët & Chandon will also have a presence in Times Square tonight at the most iconic New Year’s Eve celebration in the world. As the official champagne of Times Square New Year’s Eve, the brand will take over New York City to usher in 2016 with its trademark glamour and style.
