The International Association of Airport and Duty Free Stores (IAADFS) board of directors has elected Rene Riedi as its new chair.

Riedi is eligible for a two-year term and replaces Erasmo Orlliac of Motta International, who remains on the board after serving as chair for three years.

Riedi is the CEO for Division 4 of the Dufry Group of Companies, which covers the Caribbean and Latin American markets.

“This is an exciting time for the industry overall and the Americas region in particular,” said Riedi. “With so much potential for expanded growth and associated infrastructure development, and IAADFS will continue to play a pivotal role in protecting and serving the duty free and travel retail industry.”

The board also elected Enrique Urioste as chair-elect and Mark Sullivan as treasurer.
