Former Thomas Cook mainstream chief executive Ian Ailles has been named as chairman of travel software firm Intuitive.
His appointment follows a management buyout of the London-based company backed by NVM Private Equity in December 2012.
Ailles, who left Cook at the end of 2012, also served in a number of senior management roles at Wyndham.
Intuitive managing director Paul Nixon said: “Ian’s appointment will further strengthen the Intuitive board, bringing valuable travel industry knowledge and business experience to support us as we strive to implement our strategy.”
Ailles said: “I am delighted to be joining the Intuitive board at such an exciting time in its development. The business is going from strength to strength and I look forward to being an important part of its growth.”
