New SVP at Qatar Distribution Company Appointed
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Adrian Bradshaw as the new Senior Vice President (General Manager) of Qatar Distribution Company, which we operate on behalf of Qatar Airways. Qatar Distribution Company is the only licensed importer, retailer and distributor of alcoholic drinks for the domestic, duty-paid market in Qatar.
Adrian takes over from Colin Boother, the current Senior Vice President, who will be retiring from the company on August 1. Adrian will take up his new position officially on June 26th, but will be in Ireland for an induction programme from June 13. Adrian brings with him a wealth of retail expertise in both international and travel retail. He previously worked in the Middle East as part of Al Homaizi and Al Shaya Group. More recently Adrian was employed by Dufry, as their Retail Director in the Caribbean and General Manager of their operations in Serbia.
I hope you all join me in making Adrian feel very welcome and we look forward to working with him.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Colin for his contribution, committed service and professionalism to the business, as well as the successful management of the Qatar Distribution Centre over the last 16 years. On behalf of everyone at ARI, I’d like to wish Colin a very enjoyable retirement and all the success for the future.
