Andrew Waller has taken over from Graham Ramsey as chief executive of growing corporate travel group ATPI, with Ramsey remaining as chairman.

Waller became chief executive today (Monday), having joined ATPI in January 2017 as international director of corporate development.

He previously spent more than 10 years at Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) in roles including executive vice-president for the UK, EMEA president and executive vice-president for global business transformation.

Waller has also worked for Walt Disney, Norwegian Cruise Line, Hertz and British Airways, and served as managing director of UK Motorsport, responsible for leading circuits including Silverstone and Brands Hatch.

ATPI said Ramsey will remain responsible for the company’s strategic direction as the business pursues further international expansion.

Waller said: “I’m honoured to lead a business as renowned and respected as the ATPI Group.

“The company has grown rapidly under Graham’s tenure to establish an unparalleled market position with specialist expertise and leadership in shipping, energy and corporate and sports events.

“I look forward to working with Graham to take the business to the next level.”

Ramsey said: “Andrew has had a significant impact on our business since he joined us last year.

“He brings a wealth of strong leadership and business experience and I’m excited about the next phase of development for the ATPI Group.”
