“Richard’s deep understanding of Sabre’s unique capabilities and the different client-servicing models in the South Pacific make him the ideal candidate to grow our business and partnerships and to inspire the regional team,” said Roshan Mendis, senior vice president of Sabre Travel Network Asia Pacific. “In Richard we have a Regional Director who is knowledgeable about Sabre products globally and is uniquely capable of catering those products for the benefit of our partners in Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia. This is an exciting time for our business in the South Pacific region”.
