Damian will take up the role from 1st June and will relocate to Travelport’s Langley, UK, base from Singapore, where he currently oversees Travelport’s Air Commerce business in the Asia-Pacific region.

In the Americas, Simon Ferguson will become Managing Director, Agency Commerce for the region, which spans the USA, Canada, and Latin America.

Jason Clarke, Managing Director for Agency Commerce, said: “I would like to thank Bret for his contribution in leading the Americas over the past two years and congratulate Damian and Simon on their new roles. I am confident that leaders of their calibre will ensure we continue to meet the needs of our customers in these critical regions and help them improve their performance with the unique tools and differentiated content only Travelport offers.”
