I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who supported my nomination for appointment to the ITT board of directors. Whilst I am naturally disappointed that I did not garner a winning number of votes on this occasion, my fellow nominees were all worthy contenders who share the advantage of having developed their careers in the UK. I would especially like to congratulate Allan Lambert and Stephen Bath on their election to the board.
In my recent blog post at the start of the voting period, I talked about my passion for travel and technology. As anyone who knows me will tell you, that passion drives me to take action. That’s why I am proud of the work that Amadeus is doing in focusing the attention of ITT members on the opportunities that travel technology is delivering.
For example, technology enhances online sales conversion; it delivers cost reduction thanks to increased business efficiencies; and it enables you to develop a more personalised customer service through the mobile channel, to name a few.
As a technology company – and not simply a GDS – Amadeus has much to offer in supporting the business goals of ITT members. I very much look forward to continuing our work with the membership to shape the future of travel.
