INTERNATIONAL. Alain Maingreaud has been unanimously re-elected as President of the Tax Free World Association (TFWA) for a further year following the Association’s Board & Management Committee meeting held in Dublin today (6 December).
Maingreaud said: “I am honoured to have been re-elected as President of TFWA for another year, and I would like to thank members of the Board & Management Committee for their continued support. Our values and focus remain unchanged, and we will continue to build on the success of the Association and its events in order to help the duty free and travel retail industry continue to flourish over the next year.”
Maingreaud joined TFWA in 1995 as Commercial Director and was elected Managing Director in 2010, with responsibilities for the day-to-day management of the Association and implementing its medium and long-term strategy. He was elected President of TFWA in December 2018, succeeding Erik Juul-Mortensen who stepped down as President after a 19-year tenure.
The TFWA President is elected each year for a 12-month period at the meeting of the TFWA Board & Management Committee in December.
