The Maui Jim team has announced the passing of Jeremy Tan on December 16 after an 18-month battle with cancer.

Tan joined Maui Jim in April 2013 as Travel Retail Sales Manager for Asia Pacific and became well known to customers across Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

Before joining the Hawaiian sunglasses brand, he spent five years managing the Asia Pacific travel retail and domestic sales of Paton’s Macadamia Ltd.

Giles Marks, Travel Retail Director, said: “Jeremy embraced the Maui Jim culture immediately and quickly became a highly valued member of our global travel retail team. His hard work and dedication to his job and our customers throughout the Asia Pacific region were exemplary. We will miss his professionalism, his thoughtful nature and his warm smile. Our thoughts are with his partner Paul and his family at this very sad time.” 

Tan, originally from Singapore, had lived in Melbourne for the past 15 years. He will be greatly missed by his partner, Paul Curran, his fellow travel retail colleagues, family, friends and clients around the world.
