On the Beach finance director to leave in July

On the Beach finance director Geoff Wood will leave the company in July to pursue new opportunities.
 
Wood has been replaced by former Holidaybreak finance director Wendy Parry, who took up her new role on Wednesday.


Wood joined On the Beach in 2007 to act as the online travel agent’s finance, legal, IT and human resources director. He will stay on and work closley with Parry until July.
 
Simon Cooper, On the Beach chief executive, said: “Geoff has played a critical role in transforming and growing On the Beach to where we are today; the seventh largest OTA in the UK, taking over 750,000 passengers away each year.


“I am personally grateful to Geoff for all his work, passion and endless commitment to the business and I will be sorry to see him go.”


Meanwhile, On the Beach commercial director Johnny Pollard is currently standing against The Co-operative Travel managing director Mike Greenacre for a position on the Abta board. Ballot papers are currently out and the winner will be announced on April 29.
