Following the recent election of new President Jaya Singh and the Board, TFWA is looking at widening its representation within its affiliate trade associations. The aim is to share more effectively the diversity and broad expertise of its Board members.
Moreover, a more co-ordinated approach to its relationships with other associations will ensure that TFWA plays its part to enable the industry to speak with one voice and with a common purpose. It will also help to minimise duplication of effort as the industry’s leading associations work together to highlight its value across global and local economies.
Hence TFWA is pleased to share the following:
- TFWA President Jaya Singh will represent TFWA at the Duty Free World Council Board
- TFWA Vice President Finance Frédéric Garcia-Pelayo will represent TFWA at the MEADFA Board
- TFWA Vice President Commercial Donatienne de Fontaines-Guillaume will represent TFWA at the ETRC Board
- TFWA Vice President Corporate Sam Gerber will represent TFWA at the APTRA Board
“I’m fortunate to serve on a very talented and experienced TFWA Board, and I’m keen that we share their experience and insights with our friends serving on trade bodies around the world. At this time of crisis, we place greater value than ever on industry outreach, and TFWA is determined to support the vital work being done on behalf of our industry by our sister associations”, says Jaya Singh, President, TFWA.
