Lucie Guillemette is the new president of Air Canada Vacations.
The new role is in addition to her current responsibilities as Air Canada’s Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer.
Guillemette replaces Craig Landry as ACV’s president effective immediately.
Landry has been president of the group since December 2015 and will remain Executive Vice President, Operations at Air Canada.
During his tenure as president, he has successfully led the team in growing its business and reinforcing its position as a key player in the leisure market.
The change in leadership comes as a result of a commercial reassessment and adapting of strategies following the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Landry said: “Lucie’s expertise in leading the team and her accumulated knowledge in revenue, product, distribution, sales and network management will be a tremendous asset in establishing a solid future for Air Canada Vacations.”
Guillemette said of her new role: “I look forward to leading this agile team with a strong entrepreneurial spirit into its next chapter. Now is the time to strengthen our relationships and lay the groundwork for our full recovery by leveraging the commercial synergies that exist between Air Canada and Air Canada Vacations. I am certainly very pleased to have Air Canada Vacations join the Air Canada commercial team.”
Nino Montagnese, Vice President – Air Canada Vacations, will report directly to Guillemette as he did previously to Landry and retains his responsibility to lead the senior leadership team at ACV in all aspects of the day to day management of company.
