EUROPE: Bacardi names regional duty-free boss
Bacardi has appointed experienced duty-free executive Michael Coleman as its European travel retail director.
Coleman joins Bacardi's Global Travel Retail division after seven years with Imperial Tobacco Group, where he was most recently regional director for Western Europe.
Coleman has previous experience in the drinks industry having been Asia export area director at Highland Distillers - now owned by The Edrington Group - for four years.
Coleman will report to Bacardi Global Travel Retail managing director Maurice Doyle. Bacardi's Global Travel Retail division was created as a stand-alone business unit last year.
