Philip Haine is the Regional Sales Director Middle East, Near East & Africa for Japan Tobacco International (JTI) Travel Retail. Based in Dubai, Phil and his sales and marketing team manage JTI’s travel retail business across the Middle East, Near East, Africa and Turkey.

2023 marks Phil’s 18th year in tobacco and 15th in travel retail. Phil started “carrying the bag” in the UK’s domestic market before moving to travel retail covering the UK & Ireland. After his first chapter in travel retail, Phil widened his scope to the International Key Account team in Geneva, before moving to Singapore where he was responsible for various domestic and duty free markets in the sub-continent and Central Asia.

Outside of work Phil is a proud father to Ben and does his best to play as much golf as possible in between business trips and his son’s swimming lessons.
