Amadeus appoints Maria Taylor to lead hospitality business in key Asia Pacific markets

HONG KONG, Oct. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Amadeus has appointed Maria Taylor as Head of Commercial, Asia-Pacific for the Hospitality business unit excluding the Indian subcontinent and China.


Maria was previously responsible for Asia-Pacific sales at TravelClick, which Amadeus acquired in October 2018. In this role, Maria supervised the expansion of the in-region team to more than 100 employees and opened new sales territories in the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia and New Zealand.

Her industry relationships and expertise, combined with her knowledge of what drives the consumer to purchase travel will help us accelerate the growth of our Hospitality business and realize the numerous opportunities we see in the region."


Maria adds of her new role, "I'm delighted to have the opportunity to use my passion for tourism and my understanding of technology to help hospitality organizations grow their business in the Asia-Pacific market. The industry is in the midst of massive change thanks to digital transformation, technology evolution, and increasing traveler expectations. That's why I'm excited to be at Amadeus, where we have both the people and the technology to help hoteliers rise to the challenge of delivering a great experience for their guests."
