DUTY-FREE is on the way out on 1 July, courtesy of the EU, but that doesn't worry Ronnie Waddell, head of BAA's pounds 400m European duty-free operations.

Mr Waddell has just been appointed managing director of retail at BAA McArthurGlen (BMG), a joint venture between the airports operator and a group of investors, which develops giant designer shopping centres.

The company builds large retail outlets and has seven so far, including Cheshire Oaks at Chester and Great Western in Swindon.
