JacTravel reveals new leadership team

1 Nov 2015

Ahead of this year’s World Travel Market (which takes place at ExCel London between 2nd and 5th November), JacTravel is revealing its new leadership structure following the acquisition of TotalStay Group earlier in the year.

The combined business will now be led by an executive team of six people, three formerly from JacTravel and three formerly from TotalStay.

Terry Williamson, CEO of JacTravel commented: “Our leadership team represents the best in the business. We have formed an extremely talented group of people from two successful companies who have an incredible amount of experience in the industry along with a proven track record of delivering success for all stakeholders. We are really looking forward to presenting the team at this year’s WTM.”

The JacTravel leadership team is as follows:

Terry Williamson, Chief Executive Officer (CEO): In his role as CEO, Terry has led the group for the past 3 years, and now assumes responsibility for the combined business. Terry has nearly 30 years’ experience in the travel industry having previously held leadership positions at Education & Adventure Travel Group, Monarch Travel Group and Thomas Cook Group.

Peter Clements, Deputy CEO: Peter qualified and practised as a lawyer in the City before founding TotalStay Group in 1999. Now, as Deputy CEO for the combined business, Peter is responsible for overseeing and implementing the integration of both businesses.

Stuart Ellis, Chief Commercial Officer (CCO): As CCO, Stuart has overall responsibility for the Sales, Purchasing, and Groups Division of JacTravel. Stuart joined TotalStay Group in 2013 after previous leadership roles in the industry at companies including GTA, Emirates and TUI.
