Flight Centre Travel Group (FCTG) Americas has announced that executive vice-president of Product & Distribution, Emma Jupp, will be retiring in June after almost 25 years with the company.
Jupp began her career as a travel consultant with the company in 1996 in the very first Flight Centre shop in Canada. She has since held several roles with FCTG including vice-president of Product & Distribution for Flight Centre in both Canada and the US.
In 2008, Jupp transferred to London, UK as managing director of Flight Centre-owned BackRoads Touring Co. Ltd. Two years later she relocated back to North America as senior vice-president of Product & Distribution, followed by president of the retail brands for Liberty Travel & Flight Center USA. In 2016 Emma relocated to Toronto and commenced her current role of executive vice-president, Product & Distribution for the Americas.
“It’s truly the end of an era at FCTG the Americas. Emma personifies all the very best attributes of the company and has been a shining example of what opportunities are available through hard work, tenacity and commitment. She has set an extremely high bar that all of us here aspire to and will be deeply missed by colleagues at all levels,” said Charlene Leiss, president, FCTG Americas.
