TripStax strengthens management team with creation of two new leadership roles
Business travel tech specialist TripStax has announced it's strengthened its management team with the creation of two new leadership positions as of next year.
January 1, 2024, will see Eoin Landers promoted to full-time role of global head of sales while David Chappell steps into the role of chief product officer.
Landers, who joined TripStax in August 2023 on a consultancy basis as VP of sales, focused on the North America region, is based in Seattle.
Since joining he has played a "critical part" in driving TripStax’s US growth and winning significant new business from US-based TMCs.
In his new role, Landers will lead the TripStax sales team and be responsible for overseeing business development globally.
David Chappell, who joined TripStax in June 2023 as Chief Strategy Officer, will move into the role of chief product officer heading up TripStax’s product and implementation divisions.
He will work closely with chief technology officer, Scott Wylie, to shape the direction of TripStax's technology to "exceed the ever-evolving needs of global customers".
Both Landers and Chappell will report to Jack Ramsey, CEO of TripStax.
Ramsey said: “Eoin has already made a huge contribution to our business since he joined TripStax five months ago, driving our business development strategy and growth in the US market.
"I am delighted that he is taking on the role of Global Head of Sales and joining the management team.
"Eoin has a unique track record in business development and product innovation, combined with expertise in the technology side of the industry. He is also multi-lingual and is skilled in managing multi-national teams.
"This will be invaluable as we continue to grow our customer base globally.
“David has had a tremendously positive influence on our business since he came on board, aligning our commercial proposition with the ever-evolving needs of our customers in a rapidly changing technology landscape,” Ramsey continued.
“His new role as CPO will be even more integral to our business, as it has a direct impact on ensuring that the tech we are offering truly supports our strategic priority of keeping pace with customer needs”
Landers said: “It has been exciting to contribute to the success of TripStax in North America so far, and I am looking forward to continuing to leverage my experience and working with an exceptional leadership team to drive TripStax’s global growth.
"What makes the TripStax proposition so compelling from a sales perspective is that it’s the right product at the right time. We are giving TMC customers a very pertinent solution that can genuinely help to solve their tech pain-points.”
Chappell added: “I am delighted to be taking on the role of Chief Product Officer here at TripStax.
"It is a hugely exciting time for us as a business and the continued evolution of what is already a very successful product offering is critical to our success in the market.
"It has long been my dream to be able to bring my vision of the next generation of both agency and customer facing travel technology to market, and I look forward to being able to do so with the wonderful team here at TripStax"
