The Asia Pacific Travel Retail Association (APTRA) has announced some changes to its board, which follow.

Susana Hueso, Head of Duty Free Asia Pacific at Lindt & Sprüngli, replaces Gabi Steiner-Zajax, who has left Lindt & Sprüngli to relocate with her family to Australia.

Erin Lillis of Lacoste, current board member, takes on the additional role of Secretary of APTRA to replace Gabi Steiner-Zajax in that position.

Erik Juul-Mortensen has re-joined the APTRA board to represent TFWA in its partnership with APTRA, replacing Sam Gerber as TFWA representative.

Erik Juul-Mortensen’s return as TFWA President precludes his new position on the APTRA board representing the global association

Richard Goodman’s departure from Heinemann and move to another industry means his position has become vacant and will be filled in coming weeks.

Sunil Tuli, President of APTRA comments: “We very much value the contribution of our board members and feel very fortunate and thankful to have benefited from the valued support and insight from both Gabi and Sam. I’m delighted that filling their positions has been such a seamless process, with the welcome addition of Susana to represent the long-standing support of Lindt & Sprüngli. in the confectionery category and to see the return of Erik to continue our partnership with TFWA. As we move into 2022, the APTRA board is cautiously optimistic of recovery for our industry in Asia Pacific and we will be doing all we can to support our members as they navigate the new era of Travel Retail.”
