Andrew Clifton joins William Grant & Sons’ travel retail team

William Grant & Sons is delighted to welcome a new member to its travel retail team; Andrew Clifton replaces André de Almeida, who left the company last year, as Regional Director for Europe & North America after five years on William Grant’s domestic team. Andrew originally joined WG&S’s UK domestic team as head of the On Premise business as part of ‘Project Transformer’, to grow the company’s presence, commercial sales and brand building agenda in the channel. From there he moved in to the Sales Director for Off Trade with responsibility for all sales and customer marketing teams across retail and wholesale customers. For the last 15 months, Andrew has been the UK Commercial Director leading WG&S’s domestic sales, customer marketing and sales operations teams in the UK. “GTR is unique in our organisation, being a global stage for building premium brand equity underpinned by a profitable commercial platform, and as such provides a potential wealth of learning and experience,” says Andrew. “I am mostly looking forward to working with new people across multiple cultures and geographies and achieving our ambitious goals in an ever changing environment. As one of my favourite sayings goes: ‘the best way to predict the future is to create it,’ and in GTR the team have an exceptional opportunity to create our future and set up our own ambitions and aspirations for success.”
