Sabre Corporation, a leading technology provider to the global travel industry, on Wednesday announced that Andreas Syrigos will lead its Travel Solutions business in Italy and Iberia, including Spain and Portugal.
According to Sabre, Syrigos’ new role is a natural evolution of the successful, ongoing leadership he has already demonstrated in Greece, Cyprus and the Nordic region since joining the company in 2016.
Syrigos will be responsible for growing Sabre’s footprint and leading all sales efforts for Sabre’s travel agency business in Italy, Spain and Portugal, replacing Marco Benincasa, who decided to leave the company to pursue personal entrepreneurial projects after eight years of successful leadership and guidance within the Southern Europe area.
“Andreas has more than 20 years of technology industry experience and a track record for helping travel agencies succeed in today’s highly competitive marketplace… He is a strong commercial leader, is passionate about technology and has an eye for helping agencies grow their businesses through getting the best out of technology,” said Antonella Vecchio, vice president, sales and distribution – Europe & Africa, Sabre Travel Solutions.
Syrigos will also deliver ongoing technology insights and support to Sabre’s existing travel agency customers.
“There is no doubt: the current market environment presents Sabre, as well as many of our customers and partners, with enormous challenges. However, I am convinced that every crisis also brings opportunities and that our new structure will enable us to support our customers even better,” said Syrigos.
Sabre has recently realigned its airline and travel agency-focused businesses. With this realignment, the company aims to serve its customers in both areas more efficiently.
