Hervé Ducros (Centre) has been appointed VP Marketing at TFWA

The Tax Free World Association (TFWA) Management Committee has elected Hervé Ducros, Chanel Global Travel Retail Director, as its new Vice-President Marketing effective immediately.

Ducros was named following a Management Committee meeting on Friday 10 March, after Melvin Broekaart retired from the Board. 

He will remain in post until the next election, held in Cannes in October 2024.

“I would like to give a warm welcome to Hervé Ducros as TFWA’s new Vice-President of Marketing,” said Erik Juul-Mortensen, TFWA President. 

“He has been a long-time Management Committee member and previously sat in the TFWA Finance sub-committee. Hervé’s expertise will be an invaluable asset to TFWA and he will undoubtably bring a wealth of fresh perspectives to our Association. 

“I would like to offer my thanks to Melvin Broekaart for his hard work and commitment as a member of the Board.”

The other board members announced in October 2022 remain unchanged: VP Commercial is Donatienne de Fontaines-Guillaume from Moët Hennessy; VP Conference & Research is Arnaud de Volontat from Altimetre; VP Finance is Frédéric Garcia-Pelayo from Interparfums; and VP Corporate is Sam Gerber from Worldconnect.
