ABTA has made head of policy David Marshall and head of operations Carol Hale redundant as part of a “strategic review”.
Both staff members will leave the association at the end of March. The decision comes as part of a restructure following ABTA’s merger with the Federation of Tour Operators.
ABTA chief executive Mark Tanzer said: “With the strategic review and relocation to a more modern environment, we are moving to re-organise our internal processes and structures to make sure ABTA is fitter and more efficient, and importantly gives members better value.”
An ABTA spokeswoman said the association would still be going ahead with its focus on lobbying despite the departure of Marshall. Other senior managers, including ABTA head of development Andy Cooper, will take over responsibility for lobbying.
The human resources remit will pass from Hale to various senior managers.
