Leading travel technology provider, Open Destinations is to launch its 15th anniversary celebrations with a brand new logo and visual identity at this year’s Travel Technology Europe show in London.
CEO and Founder Kevin O’Sullivan states that the new brand will speak to the future direction of the company. ‘Our business has gone through a dramatic period of growth in the past several years, in our technology, our infrastructure and our people,’ says O’Sullivan. ‘This new brand gives us a platform to tell a new company story for the next 15 years.’
The re-brand follow a large scale recruitment drive in 2013, which has resulted in more than 400 staff now spanning across the London and Goa offices. This includes a recent expansion of the project and business analysis teams, with John Davies joining the London office as the Senior VP of Projects after several years with TUI Travel plc, where he headed up IT delivery for customer and overseas projects.
Open Destinations plans to continue the anniversary celebrations throughout 2014 in both the UK and India, with events that include a customer conference in London and charity fundraisers in Goa.
