Flight Centre Canada Appoints New President


Flight Centre has appointed John Beauvais as its new president for its Canadian business, effective April 1.

He replaces Greg Dixon who is moving into the new role of executive vice-president, Corporate Brand Development for the Americas.
Beauvais and Dixon will report to FC USA president Dean Smith who is taking the helm as head of the entire FCTG operation in the Americas, overseeing the team of 3,650 across Canada and the US.
Beauvais, formerly president of the corporate brands under the FC USA umbrella, is moving north and taking the reins in Canada. In his new role he will be responsible for a team of 1,650 with a focus on corporate, leisure and specialty travel.

Beauvais has three decades of travel sales, marketing and executive leadership experience. In his most recent post, which he was promoted to in March 2010, he oversaw all aspects, from operations to sales and marketing of the five corporate travel brands of FC USA, which include FCm Travel Solutions, Corporate Traveler, ciEvents, Stage and Screen Travel Services, Travel Associates and the FCm Travel Solutions’ partner network of companies in 14 countries across Latin America, including Brazil, Mexico and Argentina.

Beauvais started with Flight Centre Limited in Los Angeles in 2004 as vice-president of supplier relations and was also a member of the management team who assumed control of LibGo Travel post acquisition in 2008 and lead the completion of the acquisition of Boston based Garber Travel in 2010.
