Former Visa Europe chief information officer Steven Chambers is joining Travelport’s board of directors.
The appointment is effective immediately. Chambers will also become a member of the board’s compensation committee on June 1.
At Visa Europe he had overall responsibility for Visa Europe’s transaction processing business which included running all of the organisation’s IT and business operations.
