William Grant & Sons has announced a change in the reporting structure of its Global Travel Retail (GTR) business unit.

Ed Cottrell, Managing Director since 2016, will remain as leader of GTR but will now report to Doug Bagley, President of the Asia Pacific Region.

Said Cottrell: “The last three years have been very successful for GTR at William Grant & Sons, growing the business by 36% since 2016.

“Retail promotions such as Hendrick’s World Cucumber Day and Monkey Shoulder’s #makeitmonkey have won multiple awards, and the team won Supplier of the Year at the 2018 Frontier Awards in Cannes.

“Doug’s experience in this channel will be a great complement to the clear momentum already established.”
