Travelport  the leading travel commerce platform, today announced it has appointed Mark Meehan as Managing Director of its newly formed Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa (APACMEA) region.

Meehan has built a distinguished career at Travelport, having been successful in a range of high-profile global and regional roles over his 19-year tenure with the company. Most recently, he was Managing Director of Travelport’s Asia Pacific operations, which grew by 10% during 2017. Prior to this, Meehan was Managing Director for Travelport Africa, a role that saw him grow the company’s share across the continent and establish owned operations in both South Africa and Kenya.

Before his time in Africa, Meehan was Senior Vice President of Global Operations at Travelport, charged with driving excellence in customer service across the business. He also held the role of Vice President of Finance and Acquisition, where he led the integration of several businesses acquired in countries including the United Kingdom, Italy and Denmark.

In his new role, Meehan will focus on bringing greater alignment across Travelport’s operations in Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa; high growth territories that share commonalities in customer needs and operational delivery. While he will continue to be based in Singapore, where he lives with his family, he will also regularly work from Travelport’s office in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, which acts as the company’s sub-regional headquarters for the Middle East and Africa.

Stephen Shurrock, Chief Commercial Officer at Travelport, said: “We see substantial growth opportunities across Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, which we feel will be best realized through a more united operational approach. In Mark, we have the perfect person to lead this new region. His exceptional leadership skills, proven track record and deep understanding ofterritories across APACMEA are second to none. I look forward to working closely with him to accelerate the region’s collective commercial success.”

Meehan added: “I’m delighted to take on this new expanded role. Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa are all exciting, dynamic and fast-paced territories, which share many of the same opportunities and challenges. I look forward to embracing these in collaboration with our customers, and where better place to start than in Cape Town next week at Travelport LIVE Africa. The event will bring customers from across the continent together with leaders from Travelport, as well as partners like Microsoft, to discuss the new normal in travel technology and the many opportunities it brings.”
