Sebastian Ebel has stepped up to become chief executive of Tui in Germany following Christian Clemens’ decision to stand down for family reasons six months earlier than originally planned.
Ebel is a member of the Tui Group executive board in charge of the cruise and hotel businesses, Tui destination services and IT.
He also additionally assumed responsibility for the group’s central region - covering Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Poland - a few weeks ago following a restructuring.
Ebel will now also assume the role of chief executive of Tui Deutschland alongside his position as a member of the executive board.
Clemens had asked to stand down early to be able to return to Sweden with his family, where his children are to attend school again from August.
He had already informed the operator at the end of last year that he was not going to extend his contract for family reasons.
Tui Group joint chief executive, Peter Long, said: “Of course, we respect the request submitted by Christian Clemens and wish him all the best for the future.
“Over the last three years, Christian has introduced a new culture and greater customer focus into Tui Deutschland delivering a platform for growth through product innovation and a more efficient operation.”
