APTRA Board begins search for talented executive

By Jas Ryat

The Board of the Asia Pacific Travel Retail Association (APTRA) has launched the search for a talented individual to execute the strategic plans of the association and manage its various activities. An executive search agency has been appointed to assist with the task.

The search was initiated following the resignation of Michael Barrett, Executive Officer, last month.

In the interim, international agency Hume Brophy, with which APTRA has been collaborating on advocacy issues over the past 18 months, will manage the affairs of the association, reporting directly to Andrew Ford, President, and the members of the Board.

The day-to-day administration of the association will continue to be handled by Sharolyn Paul, who can be contacted at admin@aptra.asia.

Anyone wishing to be considered for the APTRA management role should send their CV with covering email to info@aptra.asia.

APTRA is the trade association for the duty free and travel retail industry in the Asia Pacific region, serving all members and the industry to help grow the business and protect it when challenges arise.

The geographical area covered by APTRA includes countries in Eastern Asia, South Eastern Asia, South Central Asia and Oceania.
