Travel Leaders Group has named Shoeb Ansari as the company’s new chief information officer. Ansari will be replacing Dave Zitur, who has served as CIO for five years and will be departing the company at the end of 2016.
Ansari has 20 years of technology experience from such organizations as PR Newswire, RealPage, Microsoft and Thomson Reuters.
“Given Travel Leaders Group’s wide-ranging technology needs, Shoeb possesses the proven ability to collaborate in senior leadership teams in aligning our visionary IT strategies and capabilities with our business objectives,” said Travel Leaders Group CEO Ninan Chacko.
With respect to Dave Zitur, Chacko noted, “Dave came to Travel Leaders Group nearly five years ago in early 2012. Yet he was no stranger to the organization that he helped launch from Carlson in 2008. Dave’s expertise has helped to cement our company’s stellar reputation and contributed to our growth. We will certainly miss his dedication to excellence, but fortunately, we are left with his rich legacy of strong personal integrity.”
