Currently, Country Manager for Ireland, Sinead will be accountable for Travelport’s largest customer accounts in the region, some of which already trade in the UK and Ireland, heading a team of technical and project management resources, including specialist account managers.
This new role follows five years of managing operations and accelerating growth for Travelport’s Irish business.

Learning from others in Europe and developing my skills can only add further support, knowledge and direction to the Travelport team and offering in Ireland.
“I am confident that we will bring additional insight to any travel discussion and challenge the industry to remain focused on technology and the improvements that the right technology partner can bring to your business. I am equally delighted that I will continue to be based in our Travelport Dublin office and as such will remain connected to the local market, to my much-valued colleagues on the Travelport Ireland Sales team and our respected customer base here in Ireland, offering a strengthened voice to the Irish travel industry in Europe.”
