Transat Distribution Canada (TDC) has made changes to its organizational structure in order to improve "efficiency and synergies," wrote general manager Karine Gagnon in a note to partners on Monday (May 8).
According to the update, Anthony Mormina has been promoted to senior director, sales and corporate operations.
In this new role, Mormina will be responsible for leading and strengthening sales and operations for all TDC’s company owned and managed retail points of sale, pursuing the company’s objectives through efficient plans, processes, and tools.
This includes TDC’s Loyalty partners and Club Voyages Affaire division, Voyages Transat, and Transat Travel agencies across Canada, as well as the Agent@Home sector.
Colette Girard, meanwhile, has been promoted to director, franchise and affiliate members. Girard has been managing relationships with TDC’s members in Québec for more than 11 years.
“Her extensive experience as a leader in both travel retail and tour operating, as well as solid relationships established over time with our members make her the ideal candidate,” Gagnon wrote.
Girard will take on the director role, overseeing the same territory, with the support of a manager, for which a recruitment process is underway, Gagnon added.
Kimberley Wood remains in her role of director, franchise and affiliate members with TDC. She also still continues to oversee national support team for members.
“As the team gradually transitions into their new roles, Anthony will continue to be involved with our members in the coming weeks, ensuring a smooth transition with Colette, until a new manager is nominated,” wrote Gagnon, who will oversee corporate agencies operations in the interim.
Sandra Wesson, director, product and industry relations, previously reporting to the marketing sector, now reports to Gagnon as a member of TDC’s leadership team.
To support Wesson, a new role of product and industry relations specialist has been created, and a recruitment process is under way.
As previously announced, Marc Pelletier joins TDC as senior director, marketing, communications and events.
He will be responsible for the development and implementation of the marketing strategy and programs for all TDC brands. He will also oversee communications as well as events.
Marie-Annick Lalande, senior communications advisor, and Paul Savoie, manager, events, will now report to Marc.
“Please join me in congratulating our colleagues and wish them success in their new responsibilities and roles,” Gagnon wrote. “Today’s changes are further steps in seeking way to deliver our mandate and continuously improve our business.”
“I am convinced that this new structure will provide stronger alignment and integrate better synergies supporting common processes and functions within our team.”
