Camus Cognac has set up a new regional sales office in Vietnam and reorganised its commercial team in Asia/Pacific.

Philippe Jamme, currently the company's Hong Kong-based area director for north-east Asia, is to relocate to Vietnam to run the new operation. He will be responsible for the duty-free and domestic markets of Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Thailand and Malaysia.

"The opening of a new office in Vietnam calls for a reorganisation within our commercial team dedicated to Asian markets," said Camus commercial director Asia/Pacific Michael Beamish.

Hong Kong-based Beamish will now handle Japan, Australia and New Zealand directly, in addition to managing the rest of the Asia/Pacific team.

South East Asia director Richard Ferne, also based in Hong Kong, now has responsibility for the following markets: Indonesia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea and various multi-national duty-free operators.

Finally, Cyril Camus, president of Camus, will now manage both the Chinese domestic and duty-free markets.

Family-owned Camus Cognac already has offices in Bordeaux, London, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Beijing.
