Lucie Guillemette has been named President of Air Canada Vacations, in addition to her current role of Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer at Air Canada.
Guillemette replaces current ACV President, Craig Landry, effective immediately. Landry has served in the position since DEC 2015 and will remain Executive Vice President, Operations at Air Canada.
“Lucie’s expertise in leading the team and her accumulated knowledge in revenue, product, distribution, sales and network management will be a tremendous asset in establishing a solid future for Air Canada Vacations,” said Landry.
The change in leadership comes as a result of “a commercial reassessment and adapting of strategies following the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Air Canada said in a media release.
“I look forward to leading this agile team with a strong entrepreneurial spirit into its next chapter,” said Guillemette, who has been in the role of EVP and CCO at Air Canada since JAN 2017. Guillemette joined Air Canada’s executive team in 2008, when she was appointed Vice President, Revenue Management.
“Now is the time to strengthen our relationships and lay the groundwork for our full recovery by leveraging the commercial synergies that exist between Air Canada and Air Canada Vacations. I am certainly very pleased to have Air Canada Vacations join the Air Canada commercial team,” Guillemette added.
Nino Montagnese, Vice President at ACV, will report directly to Guillemette and retains his responsibility to lead the senior leadership team at ACV in all aspects of the day to day management of the company.
