Sabre appoints Roshan Mendis as senior vice president of Travel Network in Europe and Asia-Pacific

Published on : Tuesday, April 18, 2017

SabreTravel technology leader Sabre Corporation has named Roshan Mendis as senior vice president of its global distribution system (GDS) and corporate travel business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa effective July 1. The appointment aligns with Sabre’s focus on continuing international growth.

 

In the new pan-regional leadership capacity, Mendis will expand his current responsibilities in Asia-Pacific and will now lead commercial operations and business development across the EMEA and APAC markets. He will be based in London and be responsible for customer engagement across agency, corporate and online customer segments.

 

“Roshan has demonstrated successful results in expanding our GDS and corporate travel business in the fast-paced APAC region through a healthy combination of organic growth and new customers,” said Wade Jones, interim president of Sabre Travel Network. “Roshan’s leadership will help our teams to better serve our customers and partners more efficiently, while continuing to grow in the two regions.”

 

Mendis has led growing businesses in the travel agency and online space at Sabre for more than 20 years and was instrumental in the company’s acquisition and successful integration of Singapore-based Abacus GDS in 2015. He will report directly to Alfred de Cárdenas, Sabre Travel Network’s Chief Commercial Officer.

 

Prior to his current role, he served as president of Travelocity and Zuji, both consumer-facing brands that were part of the Sabre portfolio. He will relocate from Singapore to London in July.
