As Chairman of Preussag AG in 1994, Dr Frenzel repositioned the organisation into Europe’s leading tourism company in only a few years, starting with the purchase of Hapag-Lloyd in 1997 before snapping up TUI in Germany and Thomson Travel in the UK.

In 2002 the company’s name was changed to TUI AG and in September 2007 Michael Frenzel was appointed Chairman of TUI Travel.

The event will be opened by Fiona Jeffery, Reed Travel Exhibitions Chairman World Travel Market and Just a Drop. “I am delighted Michael has agreed to speak at the prestigious Captains of Industry Lunch,” said Fiona. “He is arguably the most important individual in the global tourism industry as he has masterminded the completion of Europe’s biggest travel company.

“Under Michael’s leadership TUI has also been at the forefront of expansion into the new and emerging markets and his insight into the future of travel and tourism will be fascinating for the invite-only senior audience at the event.”
