The International Association of Airport and Duty Free Stores (IAADFS) is pleased to announce its newest member of Board of Directors, Nuno do Amaral of Aer Rianta International (ARI). Nuno was appointed to fill the seat vacated by Gerry Crawford, who recently left the industry.

Nuno serves as the Chief Operations & Business Development Officer at ARI. He joined ARI in 2014 and was the CEO of the Middle East region until 2019 when he moved to the company headquarters in Dublin to take up the Chief Operations Officer role.

Nuno currently has operational responsibility across the globe with a focus on retail performance, standards and excellence. Since January 2021, Nuno is also responsible for global business development and the set-up of new operations. As part of his remit, Nuno also leads ARI’s sustainability program.

Nuno is currently a member of the APTRA board and has previously been Vice President of MEADFA in the Middle East and a member of the supervisory board of ETRC in Europe.

“I am looking forward to serving on the IAADFS Board of Directors and helping the organization provide value to its members, as well as the duty free and travel retail industry as a whole,” states Nuno.

“Nuno brings a unique perspective and a global insight to the Board role, as well as the historical and ongoing involvement of ARI in the North American and Caribbean duty free and travel retail market,” says Rene Riedi, Chairman of the Board of IAADFS.

“We are delighted to have Nuno join the Board. His broad range of experience in the industry and the experience that he brings from his service to other industry organizations will be significant assets for IAADFS,” adds Michael Payne, President & CEO of IAADFS.
