Duty free and travel retailer, Aer Rianta International, has promoted Jackie McDonagh to General Manager of ARI Ireland – Direct Retail, focusing on Dublin and Cork airports.
McDonagh joined ARI in 2014 as Head of Retail ARI Ireland, having held senior roles with fashion retailer River Island and Ireland’s largest sports retailer Life Style Sports.
In the new role she will report to Gerry Crawford, Chief Operations Officer, and will lead and manage the ARI Ireland direct retail business at Dublin and Cork Airports.
Crawford says: “Jackie has made a significant impact in her relatively short time with ARI and was instrumental in the successful redevelopment of our retail offering in T1, Dublin Airport. This has created a platform for her to deliver further success in the expanded role of General Manager.” McDonagh says she will look to “deliver continued growth in the years ahead”.
