The International Association of Airport and Duty Free Stores (IAADFS) Board of Directors recently elected René Riedi at Dufry to serve another term as Chairman of the Board. Mr. Riedi’s new term ends in June 2023.

“It is an honor to be chosen by my peers to continue serving in the role of Chairman of IAADFS. I deeply appreciate the dedication of my fellow Board members in devoting time as volunteer leaders for organization,” says Riedi.

“René has been a real asset while serving as the Board Chairman. We have all benefited from his thoughtful approach to challenges and his steady leadership, especially during the pandemic and as we have been working through the recovery,” adds Michael Payne, President & CEO, IAADFS.

The Board also elected Padraig Drennan of Stellar Partners, Inc. to serve in the position of Vice-Chairman and Erasmo Orillac of Motta Internacional, S.A. to serve as Treasurer and Audit Chair.
