Carlos Muñoz, bedbank managing director at Hotelbeds Group, stated: “This fast-growing area for our group forms a core part of our strategy for growth by offering the 60,000-plus travel intermediaries around the world who use our platform the opportunity to upsell their customers with the full range of travel needs and experiences.” The group has confirmed that Javier Arévalo will be director of ancillary bank, while three dedicated regional sales & sourcing roles for ancillary bank have also been introduced to ensure the company is optimising cross-selling opportunities.
