Destinology has appointed former World Travel Holdings sales and operations chief Ryan Johnston its new managing director.
Johnston confirmed his appointment in a LinkedIn post on Saturday (21 November), which read: "Delighted to become the managing director of Destinology."
It follows the brand’s acquisition by Stewart Travel parent Brooklyn Travel Holdings in October after ceasing trading under Saga’s ownership.
The luxury operator had been subject to interest from Blue Bay Travel, new Blue Bay chief Alistair Rowland confirmed to TTG shortly before Brooklyn’s eventual acquisition.
Prior to a near 10-year stint with World Travel Holdings, which ended in March, Johnston’s career in travel started at Airtours, before he went on to work for Gold Medal and MyTravel.
Destinology ceased trading on 10 September, then-managing director Deborah Windle confirmed. Saga acquired the brand in 2014, but had been seeking a buyer amid the coronavirus crisis.
