Watch group to target travel retail as avenue for growth.
Watch group Dreyfuss Group has reshuffled its international team to expand its travel retail division.
Dreyfuss, which owns watch brands Rotary, J&T Windmills and Dreyfuss, has hired former Sekonda travel division sales manager Martin Lovatt as international new business manager. It has also hired Rohanne Collis as European sales manager, Carsten Stammer as regional sales manager in Germany and Fouad Jabbour to look after sales in the Middle East and North Africa.
Lovatt said that the new appointments will help the Swiss watch group to focus on improving its presence in existing markets and also to seek out new ravel retail opportunities.
Dreyfuss is reporting year-on-year international sales growth of 30%, with Lovatt attributing the growth for an increased demand for money-for-value products due to the tough global economic climate.
Lovatt added that there are “plenty of new opportunities on the horizon” for the company.
