By Hibah Noor

Following elections last week, TFWA announced the new members of its Board and Management Committee. Joining the board are Moët Hennessy’s Donatienne de Fontaines-Guillaume who takes on the role of Vice-President Commercial, Nadia Skouri Garcia-Pelayo from Buying The Sky as Vice-President Marketing, Priscilla Beaulieu from Kaloo, Clayeux, Kokeshi by Millennium Fragrances as Vice-President Corporate, and Estée Lauder Companies’ Patrick Bouchard joins as Vice-President Conferences & Research. Frédéric Garcia-Pelayo from Interparfums was re-elected to his position as Vice-President Finance.

Erik Juul-Mortensen, TFWA President, expressed his gratitude to the members of the Board and Management Committee who are moving on this year, in particular Gerry Munday, Alessandra Visconti and Philip Geeraert. “TFWA cannot achieve all that it does for our industry without the leadership of a strong and dedicated board and management committee. I would like to offer my personal thanks to all for their hard work and commitment to our industry.”

“Our new Management Committee and Board will bring new expertise and fresh perspectives to our association. I’m certain that the new team will be very well placed to take the association to the next successful chapter in its history,” added Juul-Mortensen.

The election of the 40 members of the Management Committee took place this week at TFWA World Exhibition & Conference, and their election or re-election was approved at the Annual General Meeting on October 4.

The new Board and Management Committee will hold their positions for two years from October 2018 to October 2020.
