Diageo announces two key appointments
Doug Bagley, Managing Director of Diageo Global Travel and Middle East (GTME), has announced two key appointments to his Singapore-based team.
Peter Fairbrother has been appointed Global Marketing Director, GTME, replacing Steve White. He will head all brand and marketing activities in global travel retail. Fairbrother was previously Diageo’s White Spirits Director, responsible for the company’s global reserve vodka and gin portfolios. He has held numerous key management positions throughout his 20 years at Diageo. Fairbrother’s predecessor, Steve White, has accepted the position of Marketing Director, Africa Regional Markets, and will be based in the UK.
Craig Norwell has been appointed Strategy & Global Customer Director, GTME. Norwell, who has been with Diageo for four years, was most recently the Route to Consumer Director for Diageo Asia Pacific. His new role will be to lead business development in global travel retail.
“Travel retail is a vitally important channel for Diageo; it is where we build our luxury brands and set the benchmark for retail excellence,” says Bagley. “As a leader in the Wine & Spirits category, GTME has a clear, strategic focus on innovation, luxury and premiumization of the shopping experience, which we will build through strategic partnerships with our customers. I am delighted to have Peter and Craig on board to drive these plans forward. I would also like to thank Steve White for the many successes he has delivered over the past three years in role and wish him all the best.”
