Alex Zoghlin has begun his new role as President and CEO at ATPCO following a two-month, in-depth handover with the executive team.
His strategic focus over the next year is accelerating the 56-year-old organization’s ongoing transformation, with an emphasis on making it easier for the airline industry to work with ATPCO in its capacity as a standards body and technology provider, with the intent to dramatically reduce the complexity, cost, friction, and barriers to entry for new and existing customers.
Zoghlin will also explore opportunities to help airlines increase their revenues and drive efficiencies through the development of products that make an impact and deliver demonstratable ROI for all.
He was unanimously appointed by ATPCO’s Board of Directors in October.
Chair of the Board and Head of Product Delivery, Global Revenue at British Airways, Jerry Foran stated, “Alex understands ATPCO’s unique and pivotal position as the foundation of flight shopping and recognizes the needs of airlines, especially in the current market conditions. He has the Board’s unequivocal support and trust. Under his strong leadership ATPCO’s modernization will continue at pace.”
Zoghlin begins his role as CEO following the most challenging year the air travel industry has ever faced due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
He observed that: “While the next few years of recovery will be a long road, I believe that ATPCO’s position as an honest broker to the industry can help facilitate a renaissance in travel.”
And he continued: “I see ATPCO playing a central role in facilitating innovation throughout the industry and enabling a much-needed transformation following this downturn, for the benefit of all players in the ecosystem.”
Zoghlin noted that: “I intend to lead ATPCO further into the future of ground-breaking product development and ensure we own our place as a true technology company and standard setter.”
And he concluded: “Together with the ATPCO team, which boasts a hybrid of industry experts with decades of airline experience and new staff that bring creative ideas from different industries outside the sector, I’m confident that we are up to this task.”
