Nestlé International Travel Retail (NITR) has announced that Frédéric (Fred) Porchet will succeed Stewart Dryburgh as General Manager effective September 1, 2024.

As reported, Dryburgh, who spent 12 years running the company’s travel retail division, took early retirement from the end of June 2024.

“I’m absolutely delighted to be returning to the travel retail industry, reconnecting with colleagues and partners – as well as making new connections,” said Porchet.

“It’s an industry that I have always been passionate about given its unique nature, exclusive products and ability to showcase brands to a truly international community.

“I am confident that we are in the right place to continue building on the ambition of [making] food #1 most purchased category in global travel retail.

“I very much look forward to reconnecting with our business partners at TFWA World Exhibition in Cannes at the end of September. The NITR unit has a very bright future and I’m excited to be part of it.”
