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.
