Abta has appointed Danny Waine to a newly-created head of membership role.
Waine will join the association on 19 October, and will be based at Abta’s Park Street office in London.
He joins from Hotelplan Group where he was commercial director for its holiday homes division.
Waine is also a member of the ITT board, and was appointed vice chair of its education and training committee last year.
He co-founded the institute’s ITT Future You initiative, which aims to inspire the next generation of travel leaders.
With Waine due to leave Hotelplan on 13 October, the holiday homes division is recruiting for a new key account manager covering the UK and northern Europe as a replacement.
