Joe Waller new CEO of AMI Inflight and AMI Wines
AMI Group announced Friday Joe Waller would be the new CEO of AMI Inflight Inc. and AMI Wines LLC.
Waller will relocate to AMI’s Atlanta office and work alongside the current CEO, Denise Poole. During the remainder of 2019 they will work together to transition the leadership of both companies.
“The integration of Joe is a result of Denise’s desire to take a step back,” said a release from AMI Group.
Most recently Waller was CEO of Pacific Gateway Concessions where he led a team of 450 people throughout the United States as well as a team of executives at the company’s headquarters in northern California. He began his career as an attorney for National Car Rental before pursuing a career with airport concessions including positions at HMSHost and Westfield Airport Division. For AMI, the addition of Waller further diversifies the accumulated travel industry expertise within the group.
His duties as he takes over will be to capitalize on and consolidate the growth AMI has experienced over the past few years. After the transition is complete, Denise Poole will retain select sales leadership activities and continue to be a shareholder in AMI, where she will continue to be involved in the overall strategic planning of the group.
