Flight Centre’s Jason Wolff to join Trafalgar as new MD

Legacy tour operator Trafalgar has announced the appointment of Jason Wolff as its new managing director for Australia, commencing late April 2019.

Wolff’s experience spans over 15 years, holding various senior positions in the travel, FMCG and retail sectors.

Joining Trafalgar from his previous role as head of marketing for Flight Centre, Wolff has worked across a myriad of prominent organisations throughout his career including Supercheap Auto, BCF, Beaurepaires and McDonald’s.

Wolff replaces Matthew Cameron-Smith, who was recently promoted to managing director of AAT Kings and Inspiring Journeys.

Trafalgar CEO Gavin Tollman said: “Whenever I hire a new executive, the key criteria I look for are one’s desire to push boundaries and drive to prosper. A passionate leader that will continue to succeed Trafalgar as the leader in our category as well as possessing a deep love of travel.”

“Jason’s customer-centric approach, with a strong focus on commercial outcomes and stakeholder engagement, along with his diverse experience across a variety of senior management roles, his ability to think outside of the box, and his desire to inspire and engage the members of the team to deliver bigger and better ideas, as well as help further define these for our agent partners, make him the perfect candidate and we are delighted to welcome him to the Trafalgar team.”
