EUROPE. Rémy Cointreau Global Travel Retail has announced the appointment of Anne-Laure Chandesris-Saunier to the role of GTR Europe, Middle East and Africa Marketing Manager.

Chandesris-Saunier will report to Europe, Middle East and Africa GTR Director Simon Roffe.

She joined Rémy Cointreau in early 2009 as International Marketing Director for Metaxa after eight years in market research and eight years in strategic and operational marketing for companies such as Anheuser-Busch InBev and IFF.

During her three years working on the Metaxa brand, she successfully launched the new Metaxa 12 Stars in domestic and travel retail markets.

“We are delighted to welcome Anne-Laure to our team at Rémy Cointreau GTR. She is an accomplished marketing professional with plenty of bright ideas to help us take our portfolio of premium brands, including Rémy Martin, Cointreau, Mount Gay and Metaxa, forward in the very competitive travel retail markets,” said Simon Roffe.
