Moresand Group has appointed former Wendy Wu Tours group chief executive Joe Karbo as chief operating officer.

Karbo, who left Wendy Wu Tours in July this year after two years with the tour operator, will report into Moresand directors PS Kang and Sukh Kang in the newly-created global role.

He will be responsible for the group’s operations in 10 global offices, overseeing 600 staff across three continents.

Moresand Group’s portfolio of brands include Crystal Travel, TravelCenter, World Airfares, Affordable Luxury Travel, Mabuhay Travel and Paramount Cruises.

The group exceeded £212 million in turnover in 2018.

Managing director PS Kang said: “Joe will spearhead our long-term strategy by streamlining global operating processes, expansion into new markets and supporting the company’s technology teams. We’re delighted to have someone of Joe’s experience and knowledge on board.”

Karbo said: “I’m very much looking forward to working closely with the leadership and global teams. The business has been established for more than 32 years with strong brands, so continuing its success and growth will be my focus.”
