L-R: Oscar Camargo and Dreamy Zhou have been with Brown-Forman Corporation for more than five years and seven years, respectively.

Jack Daniel’s parent Brown-Forman Corporation has announced changes to its global travel retail organisation, with two leadership appointments.

A new, dedicated structure comprises three geographic areas: the Americas, EMEAI (Europe, Middle East, Africa, India) and APAC.

Oscar Camargo, previously Director GTR Europe, assumes the key role of GTR Director EMEAI.

Dreamy Zhou, formerly Manager GTR Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand, becomes Senior Manager GTR APAC.

“We congratulate Oscar and Dreamy on their new roles and look forward to further growing our GTR portfolio and business together with the entire team,” said David Rodiek, Vice President, Managing Director, Global Travel Retail, Brown-Forman.

“In line with our ambitious long-term growth targets, we are optimising our GTR business structure by consolidating it to three geographic areas to better position us for future growth.”

Meanwhile, Montgomery E. Wilson has retired from his post as VP, Director GTR Americas, APAC, and IMENA, with the position currently vacant.

“Monte was part of the Brown-Forman team for nearly 30 years and was instrumental in the successful development of our GTR business,” added Rodiek. “We sincerely thank him for his dedication and engagement and wish him the best in this new chapter of his life.”
