Travelport Establishes Two New Organisations

Travelport has created two new organizations - Travelport Digital, and a new Customer and Marketing Organisation.

 Travelport Digital builds on Travelports acquisition last year of MTT, a leading provider of mobile and digital solutions to the travel industry, as well as its investment in Locomote, a corporate travel management platform.

Bryan Conway, a seasoned Travelport executive, has been appointed as Head of Travelport Digital.

Alongside the formation of Travelport Digital, Travelport has also established a new Customer and Marketing Organisation, aimed at fulfilling Travelports vision to redefine travel commerce and deliver a market leading customer experience.

 This organization will be led by Fiona Shanley, who joins from Microsoft this month.

 In her new role, Shanley will have overall responsibility for developing and executing a holistic product and customer services strategy as well as leading Travelports marketing and communications functions.

 Before joining Travelport, Shanley spent six years as Microsofts COO and Market Director in Switzerland and before that established and led GE Moneys credit card division in Ireland.

Both Conway and Shanley will report into Chief Commercial Officer, Stephen Shurrock, who joined Travelport from Telefonica Digital at the beginning of the year.

 Travelport Digital will play an important role as we look to develop a comprehensive range of digital products and services with todays ever-connected, mobile-savvy customers in mind. We know we need to do this to support the growth plans of our OTA, travel agency, corporate and travel content provider customers. Bryan is very well placed to head up this organisation as he has already been working very closely with the teams involved and has extensive knowledge and experience of the needs of todays global travel industry, said Stephen Shurrock. I am also very pleased to welcome Fiona Shanley, who I know will prove to be a fantastic addition to our commercial leadership team. Her significant experience in the technology and payments sectors, combined with her highly customer-focused approach, will serve us well as we continue to enhance our customers experience and address their unmet needs.
