Travel Leaders Group (No. 8 on Travel Weekly's 2018 Power List)
has expanded John Lovell's role within the organization, appointing him
president of leisure travel, supplier relations and networks for TLG.
In his new role, Lovell will oversee supplier partnerships
across TLG. He will work closely with Peter Vlitas, senior vice president of
airline relations, and Michael Heflin, senior vice president of the hotel
division. Senior vice president of industry relations Pam Young and her team
will report to Lovell.
Lovell will also continue overseeing TLG's leisure and
network business units, including Travel Leaders Network and Travel Leaders
Leisure Group (which includes several of TLG's wholly owned leisure businesses
like All Aboard Travel, CruCon Cruise Outlet and Cruise Specialists).
Lovell was most recently president of Travel Leaders Network
and Leisure Group. Before that, he was president of Vacation.com, acquired by
TLG in 2011. In 2016, Vacation.com was combined with Travel Leaders Associates
and Results Travel to form Travel Leaders Network.
