A former senior Thomas Cook executive has been appointed as business development advisor to Obsidian Retreat in Spain.
Pete Constanti worked at Thomas Cook for 21 years where he had most recently taken on the role of chief people officer and global head of destination management. He will take on the role from September 2.
Andrew West, who founded the retreat in Benissa near Alicante, said: “Pete has vast experience of delivering high levels of international business and improved performance.
“If you add his credentials to his empathy for our ambitions, understanding and contacts within out sector, his experience will be invaluable to us as he and our management team seek to drive our expansion.”
Constanti said he was looking forward to rolling out the Obsidian brand.
He said: “The reason that the majority of people visit Obsidian and keep returning is due to their programmes, put simply – they work.
“They restore people’s health and well-being. My role will be to ensure that a scalable model is devised across other retreat destinations, restaurants, clubs, diffusion lines and merchandising.
“An ever increasing number of people are seeking greater edification from their holidays and health holidays that provide an alternative experience, and do lasting good, will continue to grow in popularity. The time is right to roll out the Obsidian brand.”
The retreat caters for those wanting to embark on detox, weight lose or people wanting to manage illness such as reversing type 2 diabetes.
