New faces at Travelport to drive business growth

TRAVEL commerce platform Travelport has expanded its commercial team with the appointment of three new senior positions.

Reporting to chief commercial officer (CCO) Stephen Shurrock and working alongside chief customer and marketing officer Fiona Shanley is Nick Dagg, who has stepped into the role of head of agency sales. Dagg brings with him a raft of sales experience at global technology companies such as Hewlett-Packard Enterprise Services and IBM Global Business Services.

Joining him is Jason Clarke, who is Traveport’s new head of travel partners. Clarke joined the company in 2004, where he held a number of regional and global functions across sales and commercial operations. In his new role, Clarke will be responsible for incorporating content relationships across all air, hospitality and car partners.

Rounding out the team is Damian Hickey, who has assumed the role of global head of air partners. Hickey’s experience extends to a number of leadership positions in the company’s APAC region, where he has been working since 2012.

“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,” said CCO Stephen Shurrock.
