The team at William Grant & Sons Global Travel Retail has announced the appointment of Richard Bush to the role of regional marketing manager - Americas.
Richard brings wide ranging experience of both the spirits and travel retail markets to the company, most recently with Camus Cognac where he spent two years as area manager (sales) covering the US travel retail, Canada and parts of the Caribbean. In this role he developed close working relationships with the region’s key duty free operators and distributors/agents.
Richard began his career in the wine and spirits industry in 1997 when he joined Sopexa Food and Wine from France in New York City. In 2003 he was taken on by a small Canadian start up company Domaine Pinnacle and, as marketing director from 2004-2009, played a significant role in the company becoming the world’s leading producer of Ice Cider. He also helped to develop Canada’s first super premium gin: Ungava.
WGS regional director North America Stephen Corrigan comments: “Richard will undoubtedly be a strong asset to the WGS GTR team and we’re delighted to welcome him onboard. He adds to an already highly experienced and committed team that will continue to bring best-in-class products, activations and support to travel retail in the Americas region.”
Richard will be on the WGS booth in Orlando and looks forward to meeting customers there.
