Leadership & talent solutions for better business outcomes

We provide a platform to connect with a very specific, time-proven network of senior executives and industry-focused interims and consultants in the travel industry. 

By partnering with the best interims and independent consultants in the travel sector, we are able to bring life to large-scale turnarounds, bespoke change, high-growth, short-term consultancy requirements and continuous-improvement programmes at c-suite, director, head of and programme manager levels.  

Helping you deliver better outcomes

We deliver a wide range of mandates ranging from executive search and functional leadership assignments, business transformation to interim management for programme management and change. We play a vital role in unlocking the potential of our clients’ growth plans as well helping them through times of major change.

Our sector specialist consultants build strong relationships with board executives and influential leaders in travel to understand the issues the market faces.

We take an outcomes-driven, consultative approach in providing best-in-class talent to our clients’ complex challenges.

Interim management solutions

Our experience in the travel sector has exposed us to change and transformation programmes across the spectrum of travel and tourism. We've provided talented individuals that have helped so many businesses to adapt to the changing expectations of the modern traveller. We've provided interim solutions for a range of business challenges, including e-commerce booking systems, CRM/loyalty solutions for the aviation sector, rationalising cost and procurement for hotels, or helping private equity firms to buy and sell high-performing travel agencies.

Our expert consultants will help you to define the problem, shape the solution and deliver the best outcome through our network of interim managers.

Many of our engagements are delivered to a statement of work with an outcome-based pricing model. This gives you the confidence that we, and the interim executives we work with, will be accountable for successful outcomes.
