CEO Dnata travel Europe
With more than 25 years’ experience in travel, John Bevan’s current role is CEO dnata Travel Europe. John joined dnata in November 2017, as CEO B2B Europe, a move that brought him and his family back to the UK and ended his four-year stint as COO of Spafinder Wellness based in Miami, a role that he had graduated on to from being the online media giant’s MD in London. In May 2018, John’s role within dnata expanded and he assumed responsibility for all B2B and B2C trading brands within the UK. Prior to this John was MD at private travel club Voyage Prive, helping to establish its UK arm and grow membership to 1.2 million. John is perhaps best-known for his association with online agent Lastminute.com, both as Managing Director and UK Vice-President.
“In 2019, we launched the Belong @ dnata Travel Group initiative to challenge ourselves around issues relating to diversity and inclusion within our organisation. Today, as we and the industry work to emerge stronger from the recent crisis, it feels even more appropriate for us to be working with BAME at Women in Travel on this important topic. We’re proud to be championing diversity in the travel industry as an ally for BAME travellers.”
