FCTG shuffles leisure deck

FLIGHT Centre has announced a restructure that will see the company have a dedicated CEO head up each of its three key divisions (TD breaking news).

In an update provided to the ASX this morning, Melanie Waters-Ryan was revealed to be the company’s new Supply CEO, dropping her leisure portfolio which will be managed instead by the newly installed Leisure CEO James Kavanagh.

In her revised remit, Waters-Ryan will be responsible for managing supplier and commercial relationships across air, land and sea, as well as product procurement and Flight Centre’s wholesale division.

Importantly, she will also be charged with the ongoing integration of TP Connects, a Dubai-based SaaS business that Flight Centre decided to take a majority 70% stake in earlier this month (TD 14 Mar).

Flight Centre has designs on the software technology helping its business to better shape its distribution strategy by aggregating content from multiple sources such as GDS, direct airline feeds and other third party NDC aggregators.

Meanwhile Kavanagh will leave his MD for the ANZ position to take on the Global Leisure CEO role, while Chris Galanty will remain the Global Corporate CEO.

“Having three senior executives focussed solely on these three areas will help ensure we successfully execute our growth strategies and capitalise on opportunities across all areas of the business during the post-pandemic recovery,” CEO Graham Turner said.

“Mel has been at the forefront…in the product and distribution space…& James has been heavily involved in the transformation of our leisure business,” he added.
