Holiday Taxis account manager Chris Oakes is to join Traveltek in November as head of global accounts.

Oakes will be responsible for building a dedicated account management team to service all Traveltek clients within the UK and internationally.

Traveltek managing director Kenny Picken said: “With recent contract wins in Australia, New Zealand, Portugal, Malta, Spain and Scandinavia and beyond, we felt the timing was right to restructure the business to accommodate the expansion of our reach outside the UK.

“I’ve found it incredibly exciting travelling overseas, winning new orders but this also brings the need to structure our resources to the best advantage and I think Chris’s experience will be invaluable in this new role.”
