Virgin Holidays’ head of cruise John Wilson is leaving the business.
It is understood the role has been withdrawn as part of a restructure of the business and as part of consolidation with sister company Virgin Atlantic. Wilson will leave the business later this year after six years with the company.
A spokesman for Virgin Holidays confirmed that Wilson was leaving, and also confirmed the departure of Gaizka Fraser, product and purchasing director.
Sources told Travel Weekly that other senior managers are expected to leave as part of the change in structure.
Virgin Holidays said relationships and services with suppliers wouldn’t change as a result of the Wilson and Fraser’s exit.
A statement said: “Virgin Holidays continues to deliver the strategy announced by its managing director, Mark Anderson, last year. Realising synergies that exist between our businesses helps to drive growth and further investment in our customer experience.
“We continue to focus on our strengths while simplifying the business to achieve greater value for our customers. This has resulted in organisational change that brings us closer to our customers and removes complexity.
“We’re keeping all of the stakeholders in our business informed, particularly our people and our suppliers, and there is no impact to our services or relationships as a result of these changes.”
