Sabre President and CEO Resigns

Tom Klein, President and CEO of Sabre Corporation has announced that he will resign from Sabre and its Board of Directors effective 31 December 2016.

He will continue to serve as CEO while the Board conducts a formal search for his successor.

Klein said, By making this announcement now, the Board of Directors will have ample time to identify a successor as we work through a smooth transition to keep the companys growth plans and our customer deliverables on course. Then I will be able to turn my personal attention to new opportunities knowing that I am leaving Sabre on firm ground, with a great management team and a bright future as a global technology leader.

Kleins career with Sabre began while it was still a unit of AMR Corp., where he originally held sales and marketing roles with American Airlines, and then joined Sabre, leading a joint venture in Mexico.

He went on to serve in a number of executive roles, including Group President of both Sabre Travel Network and Sabre Airline Solutions. He was named President of Sabre in 2010 and CEO in 2013.

The Board thanks Tom for his service and is appreciative of the many contributions he has made to the growth and success of Sabre over the past 22 years, said Larry Kellner, Chairman, Sabre Board of Directors. Under his leadership and vision, Sabre is clearly positioned as an innovative technology company and our business has been reinvented to ensure our solutions meet the changing needs of the very dynamic travel industry. During this transition period it will be business as usual for Sabres customers, employees, and suppliers as the Board works to identify a successor.
