Wendy Wu Tours’ UK managing director Mark Bloxham has left the business.
Bloxham took over the position at Wendy Wu from Laurence Hicks in August last year, joining from James Villa Holidays.
Founder Wendy Wu will assume the role of interim managing director, supported by senior leadership team, while the operator has brought in Manny Fontenla-Novoa, former chief executive of Thomas Cook, as non-executive director on its global board of directors.
Speaking on Bloxham’s departure, Wu said: “Mark was appointed to grow the company’s digital business, a remit that has now been completed.
“We all think very highly of Mark and we thank him for his contribution to Wendy Wu Tours. We wish him well for his future career.”
She added: “Manny has enormous expertise, knowledge and wisdom, and has always been a great business mentor to me. He brings a plethora of industry experience to Wendy Wu Tours and we are all so thrilled to have Manny on the board.”
The company is in the process of recruiting a managing director.
