Former JacTravel chif executive Terry Williamson is joining the travel group which runs Your Golf Travel and Spabreaks.com.
He has become an executive director at London-based Palatinate Group and will join the board of both Spabreaks.com and Your Golf Travel to work closely with senior management of both brands.
He will assist operationally with all departments of both organisations as well as working on specific strategic projects and acting as an advisor to the group’s founders.
Williamson led JacTravel the business through growth and an ultimate sale process in August last year for £200 million.
He was previously chief executive of School Travel Group which he led the sale of in 2008 for £97 million. He also held senior roles at Cosmos, Monarch Travel Group and Thomas Cook.
Palatinate Group co-founder and chief executive Ross Marshall said: “We are delighted to have Terry join us and bolster our board as we look to take the businesses into their the next phase of growth.
“We look forward to the many changes and improvements his experience is sure to instigate across both Your Golf Travel and Spabreaks.com.
“His vast experience and success in the travel sector will be a huge asset to our companies and both myself and my fellow co-founders look forward to working with him.”
Williamson said: “The business has some very exciting plans, at various stages of development and execution.
“I hope to help accelerate the delivery of those and to help shape how the business needs to evolve to ensure it continues on the path that fulfils and exceeds its customers expectations.”
