INTERNATIONAL. As it finalises its new Travel Retail organisation, Rémy Cointreau has announced the appointment of Matthew Hodges as European Director, Global Travel Retail, effective from 2 February. He will be based in Paris.

Hodges’ previous travel retail experience includes nine years with Diageo, where he was the Strategy Director of the Global Duty Free business, as well as a number of recent private consulting projects in partnership with Martin Moodie, owner of The Moodie Report (in that capacity he is one of the speakers at today’s ETRC Forum in Brussels).
