Travelport has appointed Mark Meehan as managing director of its newly formed Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa (APACMEA) region.
The Travelport veteran has held a range of high-profile global and regional roles over his 19-year tenure with the travel technology company. He was most recently managing director of Travelport’s Asia-Pacific operations, and prior to that managing director for Travelport Africa, a role that saw him grow the company’s share across the continent and establish owned operations in both South Africa and Kenya.
Before his time in Africa, Meehan was senior vice president of global operations at Travelport. He also held the role of vice president of finance and acquisition, where he led the integration of several businesses acquired in countries including the UK, Italy and Denmark.
In his new role, Meehan will focus on bringing greater alignment across Travelport’s operations in APACMEA, which are high-growth territories that share commonalities in customer needs and operational delivery.
While he will continue to be based in Singapore, Meehan will also regularly work from Travelport’s office in Dubai, which acts as the company’s sub-regional headquarters for the Middle East and Africa.
