The former chief executive of UK travel software firm Multicom has landed a new job in technology.
John Howell has been appointed to lead the travel division of Cornish software development outsourcing specialist Headforwards.
The company provides clients with dedicated software development teams.
Howell said: “I’m delighted to be joining Headforwards and look forward to contributing to its ongoing success and establishing the business as the leading preferred outsource software development partners to the travel industry.
“This is an exciting opportunity to play a key role in a business with a clear vision for its future and core values – happy clients, effective quality developers and great software – that are driving its success.”
The firm’s founder and director Toby Parkins added: “John’s appointment is pivotal to our strategic development and growth, particularly in the travel market.
“Underpinning our success is the fundamental belief in working in an agile way and in the philosophies behind it, not just slavishly putting practices into action.
“Our clients are viewed as partners, and we work hard to make it a mutually beneficial partnership.
“I’m confident with John joining the team the travel industry will recognise the benefits of our approach.”
