AC Chairman

Aidan Coghlan, Managing Director of award winning Dublin headquartered World Travel Centre Group, has been voted the new Chairman of Travel Solutions International, effective February 1st 2017. Aidan assumes the position from TSI South Africa’s Craig Stein who served as group chairman from 2015-2017, and will remain an integral part of the governing Board.


Aidan has served as a Director with TSI since World Travel Centre joined the group in 2009. His contribution has proved central in guiding TSI from its initial status as a fledgling network through to an industry recognised partnership and global brand. He is highly regarded in the industry, both domestically and internationally, and has previously held positions in as CEO of USIT and Finance Director of Club Travel Ltd.


As Chairman of TSI’s Advisory Board, Aidan will lead the team who will in turn guide the group through two years of industry change and anticipated growth. His innovation and proven future facing leadership will be invaluable as TSI looks to introduce new global technologies and products to demonstrate value in a progressively tech driven market.”


Mervyn Williamson, TSI UK’s Managing Director and group co-founder said, “On behalf of the Advisory Board and the wider partnership, I would like to congratulate Aidan in assuming the role of group Chairman. Since the early days of TSI, Aidan has had a significant influence on our positive trajectory in his role as a group director. Now as Chairman his leadership will be key in defining our direction over the next two years. With his skill set and experience there is no one better placed to take TSI forward.”


Mervyn was also keen to thank the outgoing Craig Stein for his contribution to TSI during his chairmanship, “Under Craig’s stewardship we have taken an important step forward, enhancing our proposition through key investments in technology and personnel, as well as expanding our global reach.” Over the past two years TSI has grown to incorporate over 40 partners. Speaking on the subject of expansion, the incoming Mr Coghlan stated that “with the Board and wider membership’s support, we will look to build on the strong foundations laid since 2015 and continue the positivity and growth of the past two years!”
