Travelport-owned Hotelzon is expanding its presence across Europe by establishing a new base in Denmark.
The move follows the hotel distribution technology provider extending its network into France and Poland as part of Travelport’s on-going expansion plans for the business.
London-based Hotelzon will continue its expansion over the coming months, by recruiting further sales teams in Ireland, Germany, Portugal, Belgium, and Norway.
Travelport acquired Hotelzon six months ago as part of a strategy to redefine travel commerce, with a particular focus on growing in both the hotel and corporate travel spaces.
The Danish operation will be based in Copenhagen, headed by local sales manager, Bo Johansen.
Travelport’s global hotel, car and digital media solutions vice president, Niklas Andréen, said: “I believe Hotelzon’s successful expansion into Denmark is invaluable for the continuation of driving the strategic development of both Travelport and Hotelzon. It is an exciting time for us and I look forward to the new opportunities this will bring.”
Jani Kaskinen, chief executive of Hotelzon, said: “I am pleased to welcome Bo Johansen to Hotelzon whose role will be instrumental in adding further strength and expertise to our expanding international sales team.”
