Champagne Lanson appoints new president

Champagne Lanson has appointed a new president following the retirement of former head of the house, Philippe Baijot.

François Van Aal joins Lanson from Rémy-Cointreau, where he has worked for 23 years

In an announcement made this afternoon, it was revealed that Baijot would be succeeded by François Van Aal, who has held roles in advertising and luxury goods marketing, and most recently, a series of senior positions at Rémy-Cointreau, where he has worked for 23 years.

After studies at the Northeastern University of Boston in the US, and then at Dauphine University in Paris, François Van Aal started his career in advertising at J. Walter Thomson and then at Tag-Heuer.
In 1994 he joined Rémy-Cointreau, holding successive positions in marketing, sales and profit management – initially in the US, where he was based for seven years and then in Europe, the Middle-East and Africa.
