Cassidy Travel’s John Spollen is set to succeed Cormac Meehan as President of the Irish Travel Agents Association. The appointment is set to be ratified at the ITAA annual general meeting on April 12.
Mr Spollen, a joint founder of the hugely successful Cassidy Travel along with John Cassidy 31 years ago, said his motto is of “confidence in the country and confidence in the trade”.
ITAA members, including CEO Pat Dawson, will welcome onboard an industry veteran of considerable experience.
Mr Meehan said of the challenges then: “In my second term as President, I aim to build upon progress made in recent years and grow ITAA membership. It is also important that the ITAA continues to engage with regulators, government departments and the relevant cabinet members to overcome the future challenges faced by the travel industry.”
