Expedia’s corporate travel outfit Egencia has reorganised internally to break down divisions by geographic region, forming two global organisations in its wake.
Instead of clustering its 65 offices worldwide under the Asia-Pacific, Americas and EMEA umbrellas, Egencia now has two reporting lines, one comprising Egencia’s current sales and account management teams, and the other focused on scaling Egencia’s business operations and on supplier partnerships
Christophe Peymirat, who was most recently senior vice president, Europe & APAC at Egencia, will assume the newly created role of chief commercial officer and lead the former team.
Meanwhile, former Egencia senior vice president – Americas, Mark Hollyhead, will take charge of the latter team as chief operating officer.
Peymirat and Hollyhead are both long-standing members of the Egencia leadership team and will continue to report to Egencia’s president, Rob Greyber, in these new roles.
Greyber hopes the restructuring will help further drive innovation for the company in the corporate travel space and sees the move as fitting for the needs of the industry in the coming years.
