Crash Claims Liquor Chiefs

NZ liquor innovator, Michael Erceg, was killed in early November when the helicopter he was piloting crashed south of Auckland. As the founder and managing director of Independent Liquor, Erceg was one of the country’s richest people. Grolsch International export director Guus Klatte – who had flown from Amsterdam to NZ to discuss a lucrative business deal with Erceg – was also killed. The wreckage of the helicopter was not found until two weeks after the crash.
