What position do you hold within the Group?
I am Brand Manager for Cointreau. Within the central marketing team based in Paris, I am part of a duo that mainly deals with brand fundamentals issues, such as advertising campaign, packaging, or education, but also, and this is a Rémy Cointreau specificity, of the Asia zone.

What is your journey at Rémy Cointreau?
I joined the Rémy Cointreau group six years ago, for an internship followed by a fixed-term contract in the Rémy Martin marketing team. It made a lot of sense to me, as a native of the Cognac region. This internship was followed by my departure to a partner university in China, for an academic exchange during which I stayed in contact with the Talent and HR teams of the Rémy Cointreau group, with a clear desire to become a Brand Ambassador for one our beautiful brands. This wish has been granted with the obtention of a two years VIE in Australia, for our exceptional cognac, Louis XIII.
Following this VIE, which was an exciting opportunity to represent our brands, both in on-trade establishments, and with private clients, I then returned to Paris to take up my current position, within the Cointreau team.

How did the group support you in your internal mobility?
Since I joined Rémy Cointreau, I have benefited from a personalized and human support from the HR and Talent teams. Within an international group with a variety of issues, we have the opportunity, and this is displayed from the first days, to talk and discuss our careers, in order to build with the Talent teams a path that makes sense, both personally and professionally. This has been the case for me, thanks to regular contact, both during my year in China, and today in my daily life within the Cointreau team.

What do you think the group’s brands have in common?
Working for different brands in different markets allows you to be confronted with a multitude of issues. But, because those brands belong to the Rémy Cointreau group, we feel a common desire to promote the values of People, Terroir, and Time.
