ARI celebrates in Cannes

By Hibah Noor

Aer Rianta International (ARI), one of the world’s longest-established and most successful travel retail companies, welcomed lots of guests to an evening of warm Irish hospitality at Morrison’s bar in Cannes on Sunday evening.

The crowd headed to the Irish pub for the ARI drinks party, where a band played popular rock and reggae hits.

The Irish operator’s jovial team went all out to celebrate the group’s successes during the year in its operations spanning Ireland, the Middle East and Asia.

The group, helmed by Ray Hernan, announced major management changes in 2019, which saw new roles for Anthony Kenny as Chief Commercial Officer; Gerry Crawford as Chief Business Development and Implementation Officer; Nuno Amaral as Chief Operations Officer; and Richard Gray appointed to the role of Chief Executive Officer, ARI Middle East (ARIME).

It might be all change at the top for this thriving operator, but the warmth of their welcome remains resolutely the same.
