Niklas Andréen’s new roles will become effective in September 2018. Based in London, he will report to Kurt Ekert, president & CEO of CWT, and serve as a member of the CWT executive leadership team.
Andréen will oversee worldwide Traveller Services, which is being rebranded as Traveller Experience. He will take over these responsibilities from Matt Beatty, who has decided to leave the company later this year.
He is currently senior vice president and managing director of hospitality, car, digital media, corporate and digital at Travelport. Andréen also founded two businesses and held consulting positions with Accenture, Connecta and Monitor Company earlier in his career.
"Niklas brings a set of skills and experience to our team which will further accelerate the delivery of our strategic transformation," said Kurt Ekert. "At the same time, we are sorry to see Matt leave after more than 25 great years with the company. Matt has made enormous contributions during his career with CWT, and will be missed after he departs. I join all of my colleagues in wishing him all the very best for the future."
