Niklas Andreen, senior VP, Hospitality at Travelport, said: “Peggy brings extensive in-depth industry knowledge and experience combined with a passion for success that will allow us to take our hotel offering to the next level. She has a very impressive background, a real can do attitude and I’m confident that both our hotel customers, and her team, will enjoy working with her.”
