John Gallagher will head up sales in Latin America for Duty Free Global.

Experienced duty free veteran John Gallagher is to join Duty Free Global (DFG) to head up sales in Latin America.

Gallagher has worked with a broad range of spirits brands in travel retail and domestic channels.

In 2008 he set up his own consultancy company and worked on several projects for the likes of Hunter Laing, Danzka-Behn and Zamora International.

“John has long been a highly respected and hugely experienced part of the duty free world and I am really looking to working closely with John to bring new and interesting brands to our friends in the Latin American region.

“He has immense knowledge of the region and his understanding of the beverage business is second to none.”

Gallagher is part of the DFG team at the virtual Summit of the Americas (5 April to 9 April).
