Alan Josephs joins TravelIntelligence as CEO

Former Ebookers boss Alan Josephs is to become chief executive of online high-end accommodation specialist TravelIntelligence.


Josephs stepped down from his previous position as managing director of Orbitz-owned Ebookers earlier this week, replaced by ex-Expedia distribution boss Tamer Tamar.


Current TravelIntelligence boss Marin Muyser is staying within the company and will become its new executive chairman, Josephs told Travolution this week.


TravelIntelligence has a consumer-facing site and a sizeable white label business for a range of other web-based firms.


The business was created in 2000 by a number of high profile figures including Sunday Times journalist A A Gill.


Its first boss, managing director and co-founder James Dunford Wood, later left the business in 2007 to launch Worldreviewer.


Meanwhile, Ebookers is expected to have ex-Expedia vice president Tamer Tamar in place by the end of July as it moves quickly to replace Josephs.


An Ebookers spokeswoman told Travolution the new title of president for Tamar did not reflect any organisational change within the business but rather bring it into line with other company structures.


Expedia Affiliate Network will create a new role following Tamar’s exit, a spokeswoman confirmed.


Tamar’s role as managing director and vice president EMEA for Expedia Affiliate Network will not be directly replaced. His responsibilities will be merged into a new role VP sales EMEA for which Expedia has already started recruiting.


The VP sales EMEA position will be responsible for overseeing all of EANs affiliate and white label relationships, including its Travel Agent Affiliate Network.


Tamar had been with Expedia since 2004 and had the MD role with the affiliates unit, formerly Expedia Distribution, since March 2008.
