ATPI Group has appointed Andrew Waller as its new CEO, following two acquisitions in the past 18 months in Australasia and several new network partners joining its portfolio.
Waller joined the company’s senior executive team in January 2017, in the role of international director of corporate development.
"I am honoured to lead a business as renowned and respected as the ATPI Group," said Waller, CEO of ATPI Group. "Under Graham’s [Ramsey] impressive tenure the company has grown rapidly to establish an unparalleled market position with specialist expertise and leadership."
With a career spanning international leadership roles in the business and leisure travel sectors, including most recently as executive vice president, global business transformation for Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT), Waller brings experience from multinational brands such as Walt Disney, Norwegian Cruise Line, Hertz and British Airways.
Before joining the ATPI Group, Waller spent ten and half years with Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) in roles including executive vice president UK and president for EMEA, reporting directly to the CWT president and CEO. Before this, outside of the travel sector, Waller held a senior position in UK Motorsport as managing director of the five leading circuits including Silverstone and Brands Hatch.
