SINGAPORE, 22 January 2019: Amadeus has named Mieke De Schepper to lead the group’s Travel Channels Online Travel segment.
De Schepper comes from Egencia, a travel management company in the Expedia Group, where she held the role of senior vice president and chief commercial officer.
She brings to the table more than 17 years of experience in managing B2C and B2B businesses linked to travel.
Previously De Schepper was vice president of Expedia Group’s Lodging Partner Solutions in Asia Pacific, responsible for building and managing the hotel relationships in the region.
In her new role, De Schepper will support online travel agencies, travel media companies and travel start-ups grow their businesses and position Amadeus as the partner of choice in online travel.
As part of Amadeus’ Travel Channels business, De Schepper will report to Decius Valmorbida and will continue to be based in Singapore.
“Online travel companies face the constant challenge to reinvent themselves in order to maintain their relevance,” commented De Schepper on the appointment.
I’m thrilled to join Amadeus to help these companies thrive in such a fast paced and demanding marketplace. And there is no better place to do it than from APAC where much of today’s global technology trends are defined and redefined by savvy consumers at breakneck speed.”
