Diethelm Travel Appoints Torsten Edens as Group Operating Director

Diethelm Travel, a Thailand-based inbound tour operator servicing Asia, has promoted Torsten Edens to the newly created position of Group Operating Director, reporting to Lisa Fitzell, Group Managing Director.

Torsten joins Diethelm Travel's headquarters in Bangkok from his previous role of Managing Director for Diethelm Travel Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.

His new position is primarily responsible for leading Thailand operations, as well as working across all of Diethelm Travel's destinations to maximize best practices and improve intra-company operations.

Hans van den Born departed his position as Managing Director Diethelm Travel Thailand on 19 February to pursue opportunities outside of the company.

Lisa Fitzell said, "Hans has played an integral part in Diethelm Travel's success since joining the company in 2010, and we wish him all the best in his future efforts. Additionally, I am very pleased to announce Torsten's promotion and am excited to have him involved in our transformation efforts during such an important time for our business. Asia's inbound growth is forecasted to continue outperforming other regions and Torsten's role will be vital in further positioning Diethelm Travel at the forefront of the opportunities this growth creates."
