De Vree to head travel retail at PVM

By Kevin Rozario |

Confectionery group Perfetti Van Melle is to appoint Susan de Vree to the role of Director Travel Retail, replacing Mark Laros from 1 December. Laros will move to PVM’s rapidly-growing domestic business.


PVM says the changes are a response to growth in the duty free and travel retail channel for core brands Mentos and Chupa Chups, and to international expansion.

Laros (right) comments: “This has been an excellent year for Perfetti Van Melle in travel retail with continuing growth in all regions globally. We will now have a team totally dedicated to DF&TR which will enable us to develop our business in 2013 and onwards.”
