Travelport is bolstering its UK management team with two new recruits.

Paul Broughton is joining at the end of the month as commercial director from Chambers Travel Management, where he was EMEA sales director.

He replaces Tim Wright, who will leave the company to pursue other interests.

Broughton will oversee Travelport's commercial strategy, account management and new business functions, and will drive further growth in the UK. He previously held senior positions at HRG and Avis.

Claire Osborne joins the UK team from her role as Travelport's product director for Europe.

She will oversee the newly-created solutions account team, who provide post-sales support and consultancy to UK customers.

Osborne previously worked at National Express and Tui Travel.

UK and Ireland managing director Simon Ferguson said: “I am delighted to welcome two highly-experienced individuals to the UK team.

“Through our industry-leading products, our focus on air and hotel and our customer-centric people, Travelport has firmly established itself in a leadership position in the UK.

“Paul and Claire’s extensive experience and relevant skills will enable us to deliver even more value for our customers as we help them to grow their businesses.”
