Ho replaces Teo in Asia role at Perfetti Van Melle

The global travel retail division of confectionery house Perfetti Van Melle has hired Benedict Ho this month as its International Area Manager ASPAC replacing Estee Teo.

In his new role Ho will further develop PVM’s business in Asia Pacific. Susan De Vree, PVM’s Global Travel Retail Manager, comments: “With Benedict’s experience, knowledge and personality, I am very confident he will succeed in supporting our brands and expand our ASPAC business in close cooperation with our customers. I wish him every success in his new role.”
