Dean Smith, president of Flight Centre (FC) USA, will retain his title but now helm the entire FCTG operation in the Americas. John Beauvais, president of the corporate brands under the FC USA umbrella, has been promoted to president of FCTG Canada. Charlene Leiss, senior vice president of corporate sales for FC USA, has been promoted to president of corporate operations and sales for FC USA. Greg Dixon, president of FC Canada, has been promoted to executive vice president of corporate brand development for the Americas.
“The U.S. and Canada will continue to operate as separate entities, while simultaneously working much closer together to grow our brands,” Smith said. “This is very exciting news for the future of the FC operations in the Americas. These changes recognize significant growth opportunities and the benefits of aligned strategies in the regions.”
