Amadeus UK Expands With Three New Appointments

Amadeus UK continues to go from
strength-to-strength with overall market share in the UK now at 21 percent.
With a growth rate of more than 7.5 per cent in the 12 months leading up to
August 2003, Amadeus’ UK expansion continues to outstrip that of all the
other GDSs.
In order to maintain and increase this level of growth, and to support the
company’s current clients, Amadeus has recruited three new members to their
UK National Marketing Centre team.  Bruce Watson, who joins Amadeus UK from
Garuda Indonesia, has been appointed to the company in the role of Sales
Manager - Leisure. Andrew Savy, who has joined Amadeus from Nortel Networks,
has been appointed Senior Project Manager together with Nigel Hughes, who
joins from Worldspan.

Commenting on the new appointments to the UK team, Arnaud Debuchy, Managing
Director of Amadeus UK said, “Despite the shaky start to 2003 for the
industry, no-one can deny that Amadeus UK is experiencing a sustained period
of growth.  By continually investing in our systems, processes and people we
aim to treat each new and existing customer as if they were our only

“Through the hiring of Bruce, Andrew and Nigel, we are reinforcing our
commitment to providing the best support and advice to our clients.  They
join Amadeus at an exciting time and have a key part to play in helping our
existing team fulfil its ambitious growth plans.”

These latest hires for Amadeus in the UK come shortly after Monika Hoesle’s
appointment as new Operations Director, responsible for all of Amadeus’
client support and operational activities in the UK.
