WebBeds appoints James Phillips as its President – Americas.
The appointment of our newest member of the WebBeds Senior Leadership team underscores our strategic focus on a key region for travel and growth for our business.
WebBeds’ Americas commercial region encompasses sizable markets from the United States and Canada in the northern hemisphere to Mexico, Brazil and Argentina in the south. The size and scope of these markets will be an important engine of growth for us as we seek to expand our footprint in the region. Daryl Lee, CEO WebBeds said “We have great ambitions for the Americas commercial region. James and the Americas team will be continuing the already incredible strides we have made, delivering sustainable value to our partners and driving strong commercial outcomes”.
James joins WebBeds on the 1st of October, bringing his extensive 25-year travel and hospitality career to the team. James’ experience in the industry started with a leading tour operator and then a decade working with the Starwood Hotels & Resorts and Kempinski group of hotels. Subsequently he held leadership roles in GTA for sourcing in the EMEA and Americas regions and with Hotelbeds for Sales & Marketing. Most recently James has been advising several companies, working with the state of Connecticut’s venture capital arm on their travel portfolio.
With this appointment, Mr Ossama Wagdi who has been WebBeds’ Acting President – Americas, will hand over the reins for the region to James and continue to serve as Senior Advisor for WebBeds and Chairman for Umrah Holidays International.
We are very please to welcome James to the team.
