R&F appoints Retail Operations DirectorSeptember 6, 2022
We are pleased to announce that we have appointed Mats Malmgren as our Retail Operations Director.
The role as Retail Operations Director is a completely new one at R&F, and Mats Malmgren brings a wide-ranging experience from the retail industry with him. He has previously worked in different leadership positions within the clothing, home furnishing and pharmacy segments.
“This opportunity comes at an exciting time for R&F. We have an ambitious growth plan and a retail concept that we want to take to the next level. My job is to oversee our retail expansion – a challenge that I am really looking forward to”, says Mats Malmgren, Retail Operations Director.
Like many other travel retailers, R&F has seen a surge in the demand for travel retail products after covid-19 travel restrictions were removed. Last year, R&F opened a travel retail shop at the Cologne International Airport, and the company has also opened several new bordershops; in Holyhead, Fishguard and most recently in Harwich, with more in the pipeline.
“Mats Malmgren is going to be such an asset in this important new role, and we are very happy to have him and his strong commercial drive in our team”, says Monika Dagberg, General Manager at R&F Travel Retail.
