“I’m delighted to have the opportunity to use my passion for tourism and my understanding of technology to help hospitality organizations grow their business in the Asia-Pacific market,” she said.
“The industry is in the midst of massive change thanks to digital transformation, technology evolution, and increasing traveller expectations. That’s why I’m excited to be at Amadeus, where we have both the people and the technology to help hoteliers rise to the challenge of delivering a great experience for their guests.”
