Transat has announced the decision by Louise Fecteau, who has been at the helm of TDC for three years, to retire on 30JUN. Karine Gagnon, currently Commercial Director, Transat, takes her place as General Manager of Transat Distribution Canada (TDC), effective 01JUL.  In the meantime, says a release by the operator, their collaboration will ensure an orderly transition in the leadership at the travel agency network.

"Karine is ideally suited to lead TDC in the years to come, with her extensive commercial, marketing and operational experience in the travel and hospitality sectors. In addition, she has consistently demonstrated exceptional leadership and business acumen since she arrived at Transat in 2014," said Joseph Adamo, President, Transat Distribution Canada, and Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Transat.

Louise Fecteau's retirement marks the end of her career in the travel industry. After starting as a travel professional in her native Beauce region of Quebec, Fecteau owned and operated several travel agencies before joining the Transat organization 28 years ago.

"She has been a pillar in every role she has assumed in both supplier and retail operations," the company said in a statement.

"On behalf of the entire Transat team, I thank Louise for her outstanding and loyal service to our company and industry at large," Mr. Adamo concluded. "I will especially look back fondly on the last years, when we worked side by side. I want to express my gratitude and wish her a happy retirement, which she deserves."
