Travel accessories brand Cabeau has appointed Christian Rodriguez as its new EMEA/LATAM Travel Retail Account Manager.

Rodriguez, who is based in Barcelona, has strong duty free and travel retail experience, having held Key Account Manager and Area Manager roles at Spanish fashion brand Desigual. He also worked for Spanish airport electronics operator Crystal Travel Retail in a Business Development capacity.

“I knew Cabeau’s products well having come across them on my travels and at trade shows," said Rodriguez. "I always thought they were extremely innovative. It is clear the team places a strong emphasis on research to offer the best products to the end consumer. I am relishing the challenge of consolidating Cabeau’s position as a leader in its field across the EMEA and LATAM regions. I think customers will be happy to know there is someone on their time-zone who can work with them closely and ensure optimum efficiency.”

Outlining his short-term and medium/long-term objectives, he added, “In the short-term, one of my objectives is to grow business through our existing partners in the territories I am responsible for and to be on the field in the stores and with the buyers. Looking further ahead, my aim is to ensure Cabeau products are in all EMEA and LATAM airports and consolidate our market-leading position.”

Welcoming Rodriguez to the team, David Sternlight, CEO, Cabeau said, “We are so fortunate to welcome Christian to our team! We are firmly committed to having people that thrive in our culture and can add to it. Christian does this beautifully. He is a respected industry veteran and has well established relationships within our wonderful travel retail channel.”
