Business travel giant CWT has promoted John Pelant to become executive vice president and chief technology officer.

He is taking over from Andrew Jordan, who has decided to leave the company at the end of 2019 “to pursue other interests”.

Pelant was previously chief information officer for the organisation and will report to president and CEO Kurt Ekert from November 1.

Based in Minneapolis, Pelant will oversee the continued development of CWT’s engineering and technology, innovation and IT infrastructure and operations.

He will work with Jordanuntil te end of the year to ensure a smooth leadership transition with customers, technology partners and colleagues.

Ekert said: “A terrific leader who has been with CWT for many years, John brings invaluable insight and a track record of execution to our B2B4E focus.

“I am also saddened to see Andrew go, and thank him for the incredible contribution he has made delivering against our digital strategy, and for helping our strategic transformation.”
