“Serving as Chile Country Council Chair over the past few years has been an opportunity to make a difference and add value to the industry in Chile,” said Allamand. “As my role as chair passes on to Christian, I know the council will be in good hands and will continue bringing together the industry in this country to help create new opportunities for Chile.”
