Gerry Munday has been Global Travel Retail Director of premium luxury brand Furla since July 2011, when she was brought in to relaunch the brand into global travel retail and inflight sales.
Her remit has been to develop Furla’s travel retail business in line with the company’s global strategy to position itself as one of the world’s most successful premium luxury lifestyle brands. To say that Gerry has achieved this is an understatement. Since joining the company, Furla’s travel retail presence has grown from just 30 locations globally to having 262 doors in 63 countries.
Gerry is a travel retail veteran, with over 40 years of experience in the industry. Starting in the travel agency and tour business at the age of 17, Gerry has worked her way up the business ladder and is now one of the most well known and respected players in the travel retail world.
Since October 2016 she has also served on the Board of Tax Free World Association as Vice President of Marketing, and remains as passionate about the industry as she was four decades ago.
