The multi-category company now has a presence in more than 40 airports worldwide.

The new team members are:

Marcos Zobel has assumed full responsibility for all categories in travel retail for the Latin America region. He is based in Miami.

Florent Breton has taken charge of the European travel retail business. He is based at the company’s headquarters in Ibach, Switzerland.

Jeanne Luk will support the development of the Victorinox travel retail business in Asia from Hong Kong.

Victorinox Head of Travel Retail Thomas Bodenmann said: “We now have three dedicated travel retail area executives who will drive the company’s growth in their respective regions. With these appointments we will be able to offer far greater support to our partners while continuing to build awareness of Victorinox as a multi-category brand.

“This is a hugely important step as we look to grow our footprint in this dynamic and increasingly competitive channel.”

Victorinox AG is a worldwide-operating family business, which produces the famous Original Swiss Army Knife as well as high-quality household and professional knives, watches, travel gear and fragrances.

In 2005, the company took over Wenger SA, a long established manufacturer of pocket knives and watches.

Products are available in own stores as well as via a widespread network of subsidiaries and distributors in more than 120 countries.

In 2017, the company with its more than 2100 employees generated sales of CHF 475 million.
