William Grant snaps up Richard Bush
Richard Bush, former Camus Cognac executive, has joined William Grant & Sons Global Travel Retail as regional marketing manager – Americas.
Bush started his career in the spirits industry in 1997 when he joined SOPEXA Food and Wine. In 2003 he joined Canadian start-up Domaine Pinnacle where, as marketing director, he played a significant role in developing the firm’s ice cider business. He also helped develop Ungava Gin.
Most recently in his Camus Cognac role as area manager covering US travel retail Canada and the Caribbean, Bush developed close working relationships with key duty free and travel retail operators and distributors.
WGS regional director North America, Stephen Corrigan, said: “Richard will undoubtedly be a strong asset to the WGS GTR team and we’re delighted to welcome him onboard. He adds to an already highly experienced and committed team that will continue to bring best-in-class products, activations and support to travel retail in the Americas region.”
Bush will be present on William Grant & Sons’ stand at the IAADFS Duty Free Show of the Americas which takes place in Orlando from 3-6 April.
