FTG's new era event

Malcolm MacLeod, CEO of First Travel group says the vibe at FTG’s conference was the best he has experienced for years.

 

This comes despite (or possibly because of) the ownership negotiations that have been going on for the past few months. First Travel Group (FTG) signed a business sale agreement with Express Travel Group last week and the last legal requirements are expected to be finalised in about a month. MacLeod says some 90% of members have agreed to the new ownership structure. ‘Tom (Manwaring CEO of ETG) demonstrated some new cutting edge technology that he will be bringing to the New Zealand market across all parts of the business. Our members are excited about this. ‘I am proud of the members who have turned up with such a positive attitude.’
