Travelport has announced that Julian Eccles has joined the company as its new VP for PR and Corporate Communications.
He will replace Kate Aldridge who will leave the company later this year.
Eccles’ previous roles include VP Corporate Communications at the international telecoms and media company Millicom and Communications Director positions at Sky, the FA and UK Department for Culture, Media and Sport.
He began his PR career working at the PR agency Hill & Knowlton working with a variety of global clients.
Travelport, the UK-based, travel tech business, recently announced it had increased its revenue by 6% to $2.35bn in 2016 as the company expanded its range of products and services to clients in over 180 countries.
The company’s CEO Gordon Wilson said: “I am delighted Julian will be joining the Travelport team. His background in promoting rapidly-changing companies combined with an exceptional breadth of experience will help us tell our growth and transformation story in even more compelling ways. I would also like to pay tribute to the fantastic work done by Kate in her time at Travelport. She has been a major contributor to the company’s reputation globally and was pivotal in the communications element of our successful IPO in September 2014.”
