The Moodie Report becomes The Moodie Davitt Report as travel retail’s leading media brand builds for the future

TheMoodieDavittReport_logo_250Travel retail’s leading media title, The Moodie Report, has been rebranded The Moodie Davitt.
The new branding and logo will apply across the title’s various media platforms, including this website, and our print, e-Zine and e-Newsletter editions.
The move reflects Dermot Davitt’s vital contribution to the company and changes to the ownership of parent company Moodie International last year. In September 2015 Founder & Chairman Martin Moodie bought the company back from a previous investor and Davitt subsequently became a shareholder and President.
Martin Moodie said: “Dermot has been pivotal to the success of the company – and The Moodie Report brand – over the past decade, building on his earlier experience elsewhere as an Editor and Managing Director of a travel retail publisher.
“He has driven our print magazine from a fledgling quarterly to a market-leading bi-monthly supported by a range of supplements and corporate publications and played a critical role on all our other publications. He has emerged as a supreme conference moderator, a learned commentator and a voice of assurance, balance and reason in an often speculative and uninformed media world.
“In 2015 Dermot went from being not just my closest colleague but also my fellow shareholder. His therefore is not only one of the main voices of our recent past but also of our future. With our rebranding to The Moodie Davitt Report, he truly becomes not just a co-owner but my co-pilot as our flagship title and company soar to new heights.
«The change underlines our credentials as an independent, family-owned company with a long-term commitment to the travel retail sector. We have other exciting plans which we will be unveiling in coming weeks.»
The Moodie Davitt Report branding will appear across our titles from web to Newsletter and e-Zine to print
Dermot Davitt said: “The rebranding of our titles to The Moodie Davitt Report and the fact that my name now sits above the door alongside Martin’s comes as a real honour and a privilege.
«I recognise that with this comes great responsibility – to build on the reputation of our titles, to maintain the strength of our relationships with our readers and partners, and to be a voice for the industry. That means championing best practice, but also calling for change and new thinking where required – just as we have through The Trinity Forum since 2003 – and critically, acting as a responsible corporate citizen.”
The new logo which entwines The Moodie Report’s traditional ‘M’ with a softly curved ‘D’, also symbolises the two partners’ geographic origins, with the light blue representing the Pacific Ocean of Moodie’s native New Zealand and the dark blue the Atlantic outlook from Davitt’s Galway home in the west of Ireland.
