SabreSabre Corporation  announced today that it has appointed Roshan Mendis as senior vice president for Sabre Travel Network, Asia Pacific, following the completion of its acquisition of Abacus International today.

 
In his new role, Mendis will be responsible for the overall Sabre Travel Network business in the Asia Pacific region which will include the newly acquired Abacus business.

 

Mendis joins the team following 12 years with Travelocity.com, where he was most recently president of the Americas, until its sale in early 2015 to Expedia.

“Roshan brings significant industry experience, as well as local knowledge and relationships within Asia, having worked for six years in Singapore at Zuji,” said Greg Webb, president, Sabre Travel Network. “This is an exciting time for Sabre and Abacus, and Roshan is perfectly suited to lead the business and bring together the local expertise of Asia-born and bred Abacus with the global capabilities of Sabre for the benefit of all agency and suppliers customers.”

 

The acquisition of Abacus strengthens the global technology provider’s presence in the Asia- Pacific region, where Abacus serves 100,000 travel agents across the region’s 59 markets.

 

“The opportunities for further innovation in Asia-Pacific and closer collaboration with suppliers and agency customers are almost limitless. We will invest in this region to help our customers grow faster and expand more rapidly into new markets. It is great to be back in this region with Sabre at such an exciting time,” said Mendis.

 

A native of Sri Lanka, Mendis holds an MBA in Marketing and Finance from Rice University, Texas. He earned his Degree in Economics at the Chaminade University in Honolulu, Hawaii.

 

Mendis will relocate from Texas, and be based at Sabre’s Asia Pacific regional headquarters in Singapore.
