Eleanor Dodd has been appointed to the newly created post of US brand director for Plymouth Gin. She will work with Plymouth Gin's US sales company Future Brands and with Absolut Spirits Company, the brand's importer/distributor, to promote the brand's profile. Dodd will be based in the UK but will be responsible for driving Plymouth Gin in five key US cities, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston and Chicago. She said: "Plymouth Gin has massive potential in the US. I will be spending about half my time in the US and plan to bring US buyers to the UK to educate them about Plymouth Gin's heritage." Dodd worked as sales manager for ideal brands at Seagram UK from 1996-2002, focusing on driving sales of Absolut Vodka. {{PEOPLE MOVES }}
