Denise Heffron to retire from Transat

Denise Heffron, vice-president, national sales and commercial, will retire from Transat on March 2 after almost 25 years of loyal service to the international tourism business.

“On behalf of the entire Transat organization, I extend to Denise our heartfelt gratitude and admiration for her significant contributions in establishing the company on a national level,” said Joseph Adamo, Chief Distribution Officer, Transat. "Her dedication, professionalism, and collaborative spirit will be sorely missed. We wish Denise a well-deserved break and nothing but happiness in whatever she undertakes in the future.”

Denise joined the Transat team in 1993, a few years following Transat’s entry into English Canada. Throughout her tenure, she has held a number of senior positions in the areas of sales and marketing, and customer care, and was responsible for operations and development in Ontario, Atlantic Canada and Western Canada. Most recently, Denise has focused on the sales side of the operation, servicing and developing retail accounts and leading the award-winning sales and groups teams.

“When reflecting on my career at Transat, my time has been wonderful and I will forever be grateful for the incredible opportunities and adventures,” Heffron said. “I feel truly privileged to have worked for, and with, the best in the business.”

Beginning March 5, Heffron’s immediate associates, Robert Reed, Director, National Accounts, Pat Brady, National Director, Groups, and Nicole Bursey and Louise Fecteau, both Sales Directors, will report to Adamo until further notice.
