Former ABTA chairman John McEwan has been appointed as chairman of travel management company CTI.
McEwan takes up the role with the Manchester-based TMC following private equity firm Endless’ purchase of a majority stake in CTI in July.
He will make up a board at CTI that also includes Matthew Deering, a partner at Endless, alongside CTI’s chief executive Clive Wratten and financial director Vicky Godliman.
McEwan was previously a managing director at tour operator Thomas Cook and CEO of Advantage Travel Centres. He is currently chairman of five other travel companies including EFR Travel.
CTI was first set up in 1983 as TD Travel, and was rebranded following the purchase of Bristol-based Hotelscene in 2013. It currently employs around 125 people across offices in Manchester, Bristol, Leeds, Liverpool and Hull.
