On Wednesday, Colm McLoughlin, Dubai Duty Free’s Executive Vice-Chairman and CEO, was presented with the India Club Chairman’s Appreciation Trophy at an awards ceremony at the India Club in Dubai.
The award aims to acknowledge the contribution of long-term residents in Dubai in their respective areas of expertise and in serving the community, said a press release. The event was started by the India Club chairman.
This year the Trophy was given to six individuals who had played a significant role in social, business, educational and social life in Dubai.
McLoughlin was honored for his remarkable achievements and leadership skills demonstrated during his distinguished career with Dubai Duty Free, which began 35 years ago. DDF, which is the single largest airport retailer in the world, recorded sales of US$2.015 billion in 2018.
McLoughlin said India is a very important market for Dubai Duty Free in terms of business. Sixteen percent of DDF employees are Indians and 20 of the 100 pioneers who started with us in 1983 are still with our company, he said.
