William Grant hopes to announce a replacement next quarter

William Grant & Sons' global Travel Retail (GTR) managing director is moving to a new post as MD for developed European markets.

Rita Greenwood will take on the newly-created role in the New Year, the UK-headquartered spirits company said yesterday (20 December). She will continue in her current job until a replacement is found, with an announcement expect to be made in the first quarter of next year, William Grant added.

Company CMO Maurice Doyle said Greenwood has led a “step-change” in the GTR unit and “laid a great foundation for a new managing director to build on”.

William Grant's Travel Retail unit this year launched the Glenfiddich Cask Collection into international airports. At the time, Greenwood described the new collection as “giftable, with a bit of bling”.
