Singapore - Travelport, a leading technology company serving the global travel industry, today welcomed Chua Hui Wan as its new Head of Agency Sales for Asia Pacific. She will be based in Singapore.

Hui Wan will lead Travelport’s direct agency sales teams across the APAC region, driving customer retention, growing share of wallet, and winning new business. The role marks a return to Travelport, where she previously held leadership positions in the company’s airline and agency groups between 2005 to 2013.

An accomplished industry leader with more than 20 years of experience, Hui Wan was most recently Regional Director, APAC at Hotelbeds Group where she was responsible for delivering top line revenue growth, and actively managing the integration of several other companies into the group. She was previously ZUJI’s Chief Executive Officer in Singapore.

Jason Toothman, Global Head of Agency Sales at Travelport said, “Hui Wan is joining us at a pivotal moment for the company. Her rich sales experience and deep familiarity with our industry will stand her in excellent stead to support and enable our agency partners with the insight and innovation they expect from us, as travel recovers.”  

Hui Wan added, “I’m thrilled to not only return to a Travelport far bigger and bolder than the one I left, but also to be joining at a transformative time for the company. The rapid change travel is undergoing is a tremendous opportunity, and I look forward to helping our customers take advantage of that.”

Hui Wan takes over from interim head Mark Meehan, who will be focusing on his role as Global Vice President and Managing Director, Global Operators.
