Arnaud de Volontat to join TFWA Board

By Wendy Morley

As a result of the vote at a Management Committee meeting held on March 12, TFWA has elected Altimetre General Manager Arnaud de Volontat to the TFWA Board in the role of TFWA Vice-President Conferences & Research. He will replace Gemma Bateson, who recently stepped down because of leaving the travel retail industry for a new role within Japan Tobacco International. De Volontat has been a member of the TFWA Management Committee since October 2018.

TFWA President Jaya Singh said of the election result: “I’m delighted to announce our latest TFWA Board member is Arnaud de Volontat, whose unparalleled expertise of the duty free and travel retail market will prove invaluable in our plans to steer the industry forward. I would also like to say a sincere thank you to Gemma Bateson, whose positive, supportive and constructive work with the Association has been instrumental in enhancing the service we provide to our members and the wider global travel retail and duty free business at this challenging time. We wish her all the best for the future.”
