Leading independent Scotch Whisky business, Douglas Laing & Co., has added further strength to its Global Sales and Marketing team with the appointment of Paul Wang as Regional Sales Manager, Asia Pacific.

Wang, a Keeper of the Quaich, will be responsible for supporting and driving the continued phenomenal success that the business reports in Asia with focus on driving both value and volume growth of the core Remarkable Regional Malts and Exceptional Single Casks brands. His tenure in the industry spans 25 years, with his most recent experience gained working with the Glenfarclas brand in Taiwan.

Chris Leggat, Commercial Director at Douglas Laing & Co. comments:

We are thrilled to have Paul join our team and he will play a major part in delivering our KPIs within Asia in the coming months and years. Our business objectives there centre around building brand awareness and trade presence for our Remarkable Regional Malts range, building on the recent successes we’ve had in the region. Japan and Taiwan are relatively mature markets for us, so it’s about maintaining the positive growth there, whilst China is a relatively new market and represents sizable potential. The opportunity for Paul, our brands and our business is substantial and we are poised, focused and excited to be investing in the region.
