His timely appointment marks the start of a new phase for the business as it embarks on its second year with Travelport with ambitions to grow in the hotel and corporate travel space on an international basis.”

Daniel added: “I cannot be happier joining a leading business like Travelport Hotelzon. The opportunity is huge; the team has an intensive focus on developing pioneering products for its corporate and hotel customers while taking up the challenge of expanding its network into new territories. I look forward to building on that foundation and applying my experience so we realise the full growth potential of the business over the coming years.”
