SINGAPORE, 2 August 2021: Flight Centre Travel Group appointed Peter Gianusso to the role of global chief technology officer last week.
He will head up technology for the group’s corporate division, including the global data consolidation platform used to collect travel data from all corporate markets, a business rule & automation platform used to improve data quality and travel automation, and centralised traveller profile & API platforms.
