Diageo has not confirmed the date of Humphreys' departure, but revealed it will not be before July.

Humphreys has taken a high-profile role within the duty-free industry since taking the Diageo job in July 2008.

He pledged to double the duty-free spirits category to US$12bn by 2015 and called on travel-retailers, suppliers and airport authorities to work more closely on promotions and marketing.

“Phil leaves the business in excellent shape,” said Stuart Fletcher, president of Diageo’s International Region. “I have already started the search for an outstanding leader who can take GTME on to even greater things and will make an announcement as soon as I am able.”
