Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 19 January 2010

David V. Jones, who will continue to lead Amadeus as President & CEO through 2010, will be succeeded in January 2011 by present Deputy CEO and until now also CFO, Luis Maroto.

 Amadeus has also appointed Ana de Pro as new CFO, replacing Luis Maroto as he moves forward to encompass other responsibilities. Prior to joining Amadeus, Ana de Pro held senior management positions at Arthur Andersen, Metrovacesa and Sacyr Vallehermoso. Her remarkable professional track record within the Spanish corporate world will be brought to bear immediately with her incorporation into the Amadeus management team starting February 2010.

Furthermore, Sabine Hansen Peck has been appointed Vice President, Human Resources, responsible for Group HR worldwide. With over 17 years of experience managing large HR functions and multi-cultural teams, her ability and skills will bring real added value to Amadeus with its over 8,900 professionals representing more than 120 nationalities. Sabine joined Amadeus from Citigroup where she was Head of Human Resources, Europe, Middle East & Africa for the Global Consumer Group.

David Jones said I welcome the appointment of Luis Maroto as future President & CEO and I am looking forward to dedicating all my efforts to Amadeus for the next 12 months. Our worldwide commercial organisation will continue to be led by Philippe Chrque as Executive Vice President Commercial. Moreover, Jean-Paul Hamon and Eberhard Haag remain as Executive Vice Presidents in charge of Development and Operations, respectively, and Toms Lpez Fernebrand as Vice President General Counsel. I am confident that together we will continue to set Amadeus in a class of its own in terms of industry knowledge, vision and innovation.

Luis Maroto added, I am delighted to be working hand in hand throughout 2010 with David ensuring a smooth and focused evolution. The appointments of Ana de Pro and Sabine Hansen Peck clearly demonstrate Amadeus ability to attract the best professional talents. The management structure shows a continuity and stability in Amadeus leadership that is a key element of our success.

- David V. Jones, President & CEO
