CWT’s UK director departs amid reshuffle

Carlson Wagonlit Travel has restructured its EMEA leadership team in a move that sees the departure of UK & Ireland Country Director Johan Wilson

The TMC says its new model has been successfully trialed in the Nordics and will ‘optimise speed to market and service to clients’.

Six new appointments have been announced while the role of country director has been removed from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Benelux, France and Spain, as well as the UK & Ireland.

“This new organisational structure will make us more responsive to our clients’ needs across EMEA,” said Chris Bowen, CWT’s Managing Director, EMEA.

“Business is increasingly done across borders – especially within Europe – and as our customers evolve, we’re evolving with them.”

The six new appointments are as follows: Stéphane Birochau as VP North & South Europe Program Management; Denise Harman as VP Western Europe Program Management; Westyna Kulczycka as VP Poland and Deputy Head of Eastern Europe; Jan Latenstein van Voorst as VP EMEA Multinational Program Management & Sales; Jari Oinonen as VP North & South Europe Sales; and Phil Wooster as VP Western Europe Sales.

Bowen thanked the departing country directors “for their hard work and dedication, and we wish them all the best in their future endeavours”.
