Wendy Wu Tours’ group chief executive Joe Karbo has left the business.

Karbo joined as chief executive officer in 2016. He then filled the additional role of acting managing director for the UK business in 2017.

In July 2018 Joe also took up a one-year post as managing director in Australia, a tenure which has now been completed.

Wendy Wu, founder and chairwoman of Wendy Wu Tours said: “As the company’s chief executive role has been restructured, it was agreed by mutual decision that Joe would leave the business.

“We thank Joe for all his hard work, dedication and the innovations he has brought to the business.”

Wendy Wu Tours is recruiting for a managing director for its Australian division. During the interim period, this arm of the business will be managed by the senior leadership team in Australia with the support of the global office.

Wendy Wu appointed former STA Travel boss Glen Mintrim as managing director of its UK business last week.
