Avoya Travel Changes Up Executive Leadership

Jeff and Michael Anderson have been promoted to co-presidents.

Avoya Travel has made a number of changes to its executive team. Jeff Anderson and Michael Anderson have been promoted to co-presidents, while Brad Anderson has been promoted to co-founder. 

As co-presidents, Jeff and Michael will be responsible for directing the company’s vision and guiding the overall organization, Avoya said, including driving the Avoya 2025 strategy. Previously, Jeff and Michael had shared responsibility for growing Avoya’s business, with Jeff leading efforts on sales and marketing and Michael developing the organization’s technology. 

The moves will also see Brad Anderson, formerly Avoya’s president, joining his brother Van Anderson in the role of co-founder. Van has held that role since 2015. Both will focus on long-range strategic planning, fostering industry relationships and supporting the organization’s executive team. 

Avoya has also promoted Ashley Hunter from vice president of business development to senior vice president of strategic operations and partnerships. The position expands on her work cultivating close relationships with preferred supplier, as well as corporate planning and execution of internal processes. She will also focus on creating and implementing cross-department strategies to meet the organization’s short and long-term goals.

Finally, Avoya has also made a number of other important promotions in several departments, including Steve Hirshan to senior vice president of sales, Viola De Velasco to vice president of sales operations and Daniel Rego to vice president of business intelligence, among others.
