Burling’s Tui executive board role extended

Former Tui UK & Ireland boss David Burling has had his role on the executive board of the European travel giant extended.

He will now remain on the board for a further three years until May 2021.

Burling has overall responsibility for the company’s northern region, covering the UK & Ireland, Nordic countries, Canada and Russia, as well as hotel purchasing and the airline platform.

He has been a member of the Tui Group’s management bodies for almost six years.

Group HR and labour relations director Dr Elke Eller also had her term of office extended as a member of the executive board for three years up to October 2021. She is responsible for the development of 67,000 employees of the Tui Group worldwide as well as for security, health and safety.

Tui AG supervisory board chairman Professor Klaus Mangold said: “With the renewed appointment of Dr Elke Eller and David Burling, we are continuing the good co-operation with both board members and aiming at continued success.

“Following the merger of Tui AG with the former Tui Travel, the development of a joint corporate culture has emerged as an important challenge.

“Dr Eller successfully pays special attention to this process of cultural change.

“Under the management of David Burling, Tui UK & Ireland has maintained its position as a reliable source of profit even in the difficult situation following the Brexit vote.

“In the Nordic countries, he has achieved an important turnaround in the trend. Today, Tui Nordic is setting the pace for the digitisation of Tui tour operators.”
