Michel Camus

Former President of Camus

Michel Camus (1911-1985) was the former President of Camus, a company which produced a family made brand of cognac. Mr Camus joined the family company in 1931 when he was just twenty one years old, and after several years of promotion, he was appointed President. A major feature of his Presidency was creating an increased export relationship between Camus and Russia. The relationship allowed the company to achieve an exclusive spirits export and import contract between France and Russia in 1959. In the early 1960′s he continued to expand the company internationally by exporting to the American group, DFS Galleria, who produced a variety of Camus gifts, such as Limoges porcelain and Baccarat crystal decanters that were aimed at travellers. He also heavily promoted the quality of his cognac in a signature frosted bottle. During his time at Camus, the company continued to become internationalised, opening its first office in Hong Kong in 1971.
