AITO Head of Commercial Bharat Gadhoke is to leave the association after 10 years.
He will step down on 31 January 2024.
Bharat said: “I have always been a strong supporter and defender of AITO members on a wide range of issues affecting the specialist travel businesses represented by AITO. The Association has been well represented across various Government departments, especially during the COVID crisis.
“There is still a massive effort required to gain recognition for our sector. We need to put our heads above the parapet and to continue the fight with considerable determination.”
AITO Executive Director Martyn Sumners said: “The entire board of AITO is naturally disappointed that Bharat is moving on after nearly 10 years of, frankly, hard slog.
“We of course wish him well in his future endeavours and thank him warmly for everything that he has done for the AITO family.”
