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.”
