CEO, TTG Media

Daniel Pearce is CEO and owner of TTG Media. Joining as Editor in 2010, he moved to brand director in 2012 before mounting a management buy-out in 2013 and setting up TTG Media as a wholly independent media business.

Since then TTG Media has gone from strength to strength, launching a string of new initiatives including the TTG Top 50 Travel Agencies, TTG LGBT events, the ttgluxury Travel Awards, the ttgluxury Travel Summit, new website ttgmedia.com and last summer the first TTG Diversity & Inclusion in Travel conference.

In April 2019 the business saw a rebrand under a new vision for a ‘Smarter, Better, Fairer’ travel industry – and new investment in print publishing, with weekly magazine TTG still at the heart of the industry 66 years after its first edition.

In November TTG Media was named Independent Publishing Company of the Year, with the magazine winning Relaunch of the Year, at the PPA Independent Publisher Awards.

“I have agreed to support the Forum because I believe that the travel industry still has some way to go in all areas of diversity and inclusion, including female representation. TTG Media has been among those leading the conversation around this in travel for some time and understands that while many have good intentions, there is still a gap with what many companies are actually achieving with developing women meaningfully, particularly at the most senior level.

I am proud to lead a company where we have an even split of female to male representation at all levels, and where I hope all women feel they have equal opportunities to both be heard and develop their careers – for both their benefit and that of the business.”
