Decius Valmorbida to lead Travel Channels business at Amadeus

Valmorbida, currently head of the Europe, the Middle East and Africa region, is to replace Laurens Leurink who is leaving the company for personal reasons.

 

He also becomes a member of the company’s executive committee.

 

Valmorbida is a 13-year veteran of Amadeus, which he joined as an operational director in Brazil. He subsequently became vice-president for Latin America in 2009, and oversaw a period of growth in both the distribution and IT businesses in the region.

 

In 2013, Valmorbida moved to Madrid serving in the global role of vice-president distribution marketing, in which position he has managed both commercial and marketing strategy for the business unit, which has grown strongly during a challenging period. He was appointed vice president, Europe, the Middle East and Africa earlier in 2017.

 

“Decius brings to this role a deep understanding of the industry and the needs of travel subscribers as well as experience of negotiating with travel providers. He is an innovative and energetic leader and I am confident he will drive the business forward,” said Luis Maroto, President and chief executive, Amadeus. “I would like to thank Laurens for the positive contribution he has made during his time at Amadeus.”
