Claire Harrington has been recruited by Flight Centre Travel Group as head of corporate marketing Europe.

She moves from travel management company ATPI where she was as head of UK and group marketing and communications.

Harrington will oversee marketing strategy for Flight Centre’s corporate brands including global travel management division FCM Travel Solutions in EMEA, plus specialist SME divisions Corporate Traveller and Flight Centre Business Travel in Europe and MICE division clients in the UK.

She replaces Sue Robinson, who is returning to her native Australia to become marketing manager for FCM Australia after ten years in the UK.

Flight Centre Travel Group chief marketing officer Frits de Kok said: “We are extremely pleased to welcome Claire to the corporate marketing team. Her expertise and knowledge in managing corporate marketing campaigns and her communication skills will be a great asset as our corporate brands continue to evolve in EMEA.

“We wish Sue all the very best in the next chapter in her career with FCM and thank her for her outstanding contribution to our marketing efforts during her time in the UK.”

Harrington added: “I am looking forward to working with the brand leaders for each of Flight Centre’s corporate divisions and our global marketing teams in order to continue growing our marketing presence in 2020 and beyond.”
