Amadeus Gulf inaugurates new headquarters in Abu Dhabi and appoints new MD
Amadeus Gulf today inaugurated its new headquarters in Abu Dhabi, close to the Abu Dhabi International Airport. The strategic move, aimed at complementing the fast-growing Gulf travel and tourism sector, follows the recent appointment of Graham Nichols as managing director of Amadeus Gulf.
The new state-of-the-art technology office is located on the ninth floor of the SJ Tower in close proximity to the airlines and travel community. Amadeus Gulf has taken advantage of the relocation to upgrade its equipment and technical infrastructure to include an advanced Training Centre. The premises also feature dedicated departments for sales, customer support, operations, finance, marketing and products.
In his role as managing director, Nichols will be accountable for growing the business in the Gulf region (UAE, Oman and Bahrain). He replaces Adrian Gane, who has been appointed as regional general manager - field sales, at Etihad Airways. Graham has moved to Abu Dhabi joining Etihad as the Managing Director of their Joint venture with Amadeus in the Gulf region.
Speaking on his new role at Amadeus, Nichols said: “I have witnessed the steady growth of Amadeus in the region over the past few years and look forward to accelerating that by supporting the Gulf travel community with Amadeus’ unparalleled range of technology solutions and services. I am confident that Amadeus will continue leveraging the long term synergy that we share with some of the industry’s leading business partners in the region.”
