A new sales director from Carlson Wagonlit Travel has been named by Paxport, the Swedish owner of UK travel software firm Multicom.
Mats Torebrandt has been appointed by the travel retail and passenger management specialists, having previously worked for Amadeus Scandinavia, Projectplace and American Express.
Torebrandt will oversee the company’s combined sales and account management operations in Sweden and the UK following Paxport’s acquisition of Multicom in January.
Paxport’s chief executive, Tony Barker, said: “We are delighted to have recruited someone of the quality and experience of Mats to this strategic sales role as we set out to achieve our vision of creating the world’s best travel retail experience.
“Mats joins at an exciting time for Paxport which is now ideally placed to service a market that is ready for the range of travel products and services we can provide, while working with resellers to maximize the opportunities and benefits to all parties.”
Torebrandt added: “I am very excited about the opportunity to ensure we can leverage on the synergies between Paxport and Multicom to be the natural partner in the merchandising distribution industry.
“Both areas of the business have the competence, well proven and best-in-class technology to add value and increase revenues for our customers.”
