Bacardi Global Travel Retail Division has promoted two of its regional sales directors into more senior roles.

Former regional manager for UK/Ireland Leigh Irvine has been appointed travel-retail regional director for Western Europe. Hauke Marquardt, previously regional manager for Central Europe, Eastern Europe and Turkey now becomes travel-retail regional director for Central Europe, Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

Both Irvine and Marquardt will continue to report to Bacardi Global Travel Retail Division managing director Maurice Doyle, who said: "Leigh and Hauke have been integral parts of the Bacardi organisation for many years. Their contributions to date have been notable, and I look forward to sharing in their future successes."

Bacardi Global Travel Retail Division was established in 2006 to better exploit the commercial and marketing potential of the travel-retail business.
