Transat has announced that Nathalie Boyer will be departing TDC as she has accepted a senior executive role outside the travel industry. Boyer's last day will be 31JUL.

With Boyer's imminent departure, Transat has promoted two of its employees, with Louise Fecteau taking on the role of General Manager of Transat Distribution Canada (TDC), and Karine Gagnon Commercial Director for Transat’s Quebec region. 

Both appointments are due to take effect 01AUG. 

Currently Commercial Director for the Quebec region, Louise Fecteau has more than 25 years of experience in the travel industry and extensive knowledge of agency operations. 

“Louise is one of the most respected figures in our industry, with proven leadership qualities,” said TDC President and Transat Chief Distribution Officer Joseph Adamo. “I am certain that she will brilliantly guide the TDC network in the years to come and that everyone in our industry will applaud her appointment.” 

Karine Gagnon, currently Transat’s Manager, Product and Destination Services, will replace Louise Fecteau and report to Adamo.

“Karine is ideally suited to take on this new challenge,” Adamo said. “Before joining Transat in DEC 2014, Karine had already acquired extensive sales and marketing experience in the travel industry with different tour operators and hotel chains.” 

Adamo said departing Nathalie Boyer has made a "remarkable contribution" to the success of Transat.

“I also want to thank Nathalie sincerely for her outstanding contribution and her many achievements. From her earliest days working for Consultours, to her stint working in France, to the last two years at the helm of TDC, Nathalie has made a remarkable contribution to our success," said Adamo. "I want to wish her every possible success in her new duties and for her entire career."
