General Manager Middle East, India and Subcontinent DUFRY
It has been my pleasure to take up several leadership roles, spanning more than 20 countries, during my career with Dufry and since 2000 have been fortunate to benefit from assignments in Africa, the Caribbean, South Asia and currently the Middle East. I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience of operational management and the working dynamics required within the travel retail industry to deliver successful results including dealing with landlords, airport authorities, key stakeholders and International brands. I have closely witnessed the growth of the industry within this region and, on behalf of DUFRY, would be very happy to volunteer as a Board Member to MEADFA and contribute to its further success.
Today, DUFRY is present within 14 countries across the Region – U.A.E. (Sharjah), Jordan, Kuwait, India, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Cape Verde, Morocco and Algeria. DUFRY has the vision to further develop and contribute to Travel Retail and enhance it’s image across the Middle East and Africa.
I aim to offer my wealth of experience and skillset to the MEADFA and actively contribute to its further success whilst supporting its key stakeholders and partners throughout the Region.
