Sabre Corporation just named Roshan Mendis the new senior vice president for Sabre Travel Network, Asia Pacific. The announcement came following the company’s completion of its acquisition of Abacus International.
Mendis will now be responsible for the overall Sabre Travel Network business in the Asia Pacific region, including the newly acquired Abacus business. He previously was with Travelocity.com for 12 years, where he was most recently president of the Americas until its sale in early 2015 to Expedia.
He was also president of Zuji, Travelocity’s Asia Pacific brand, and prior to that, vice president of Travelocity Partner Network.
“The opportunities for further innovation in Asia-Pacific and closer collaboration with suppliers and agency customers are almost limitless. We will invest in this region to help our customers grow faster and expand more rapidly into new markets. It is great to be back in this region with Sabre at such an exciting time,” said Mendis
Mendis is a native of Sri Lanka, and holds an MBA in marketing and finance from Rice University in Texas. He earned his degree in economics at the Chaminade University in Honolulu, Hawaii.
