Oettinger Davidoff AG has announced that Dylan Austin has been promoted to president of Davidoff Americas.

It’s the latest in a series of promotions for Austin who was promoted to head of sales for the U.S. last January, given the responsibility for sales and marketing for Latin America last summer and then promoted to vp of sales and marketing for the Americas late last year.

“I know that the combination of Dylan’s leadership, his strategic thinking and his relentless focus on brilliant execution and outstanding business performance will translate to an exciting new chapter for Oettinger Davidoff AG, our customers and our consumers in the Americas,” said Jim Young, chief commercial officer for Oettinger Davidoff AG.

Austin is succeeding Young, who previously oversaw Davidoff’s business in the Americas. Young remains as the company’s chief commercial officer based out of its headquarters in Basel, Switzerland.

Austin joined Davidoff in 2008 after the company acquired Camacho.
