He comes with a very strong track record of sales for major global technology companies. This experience will equip us well as we transform our Agency Sales commercial capabilities to drive further growth. With Jason bringing his agency experience to the content side, and Damian stepping up to the global role for airline content, I am confident we have a very strong team to drive our commercial strategy as we make the experience of buying and managing travel continually better for all our customers.”
