THE Travel Corporation’s MD for Trafalgar, Costsaver and the Contiki brands Katrina Barry has announced a shock exit from the travel industry to take up a leadership position role in the technology sector.
Barry has been with TTC since 2013 and admitted the call to leave the company has been an “incredibly difficult decision”.
“Working for TTC over the last eight years with its exceptional travel experiences and people has, without a doubt, been the highlight of my career,” Barry said.
“I love this business and the brands I have had the privilege to work for…the depth of respect, admiration and gratitude I have for the Tollman family is incomparable,” she added.
Barry has been replaced on an interim basis by Trafalgar’s Global Marketing Officer Dee Marrocoo, and she will also step down from her senior role with the Australian Federation of Travel Agents.
