AMI Group announces Joe Waller, new CEO of AMI Inflight Inc. and AMI Wines LLC. Joe 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.

Most recently Joe 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. Joe began his career as an attorney for National Car Rental before pursuing a career with airport concessions including positions at HMS Host and Westfield Airport Division.  For AMI, the addition of Waller further diversifies the accumulated travel industry expertise within the group.

Joe’s duties as he takes over will be to capitalize on and consolidate the growth AMI has experienced over the past few years. His task will be to maintain the high level of service that AMI’s suppliers and customers have come to expect, first focusing on AMI Inflight and later AMI Wines. After the transition is complete, Denise 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.

With a team of sales and marketing specialists located around the world, AMI guarantees the highest level of service. Our diversified portfolio of international brands as well as custom products fits a wide range of our customers’ needs.
