Travelport has new senior figure

Travelport has taken on a new vice-president in charge of channel strategy and pricing, whose responsibility will be to pinpoint the most attractive growth opportunities for products and services.

Any success in this field will boost hopes for travel jobs, which would be especially welcome in the current hard economic times.

Gilles Mascaras joins from rival Amadeus where he worked for 19 years. He was an executive, heading Amadeus's global online travel agencies and leisure travel agents group.

Mr Mascaras held management positions including ones in the company's airline division, heading e-commerce and became an account director for a main airline group.

He was hailed by Travelport chief marketing officer Gillian Gibson, who said the company was delighted to have him as part of the team because of his experience and knowledge.

She praised Mr Mascaras as having "a strong technology and business background with well-developed expertise combining strategy, sales leadership, business development and product management."
