Denise Heffron leaving Transat after 25 years

MONTREAL — After a milestone 25 years of service, Transat’s Denise Heffron, Vice-President, National Sales and Commercial, has announced her retirement from the company.

Her final day is scheduled for March 2. Beginning March 5, Heffron’s immediate associates – Robert Reed, Director, National Accounts, Pat Brady, National Director, Groups, and Nicole Bursey and Louise Fecteau, both Commercial Directors – will report to Joseph Adamo, Chief Distribution Officer.

Denise Heffron, VP National Sales & Commercial, Transat Tours Canada“On behalf of the entire Transat organization, I extend to Denise our heartfelt gratitude and admiration for her significant contributions in establishing the company on a national level,” said Adamo. “Her dedication, professionalism and collaborative spirit will be sorely missed. We wish Denise a well-deserved break and nothing but happiness in whatever she undertakes in the future.”

Heffron first joined the Transat team in 1993, a few years following Transat’s entry into English Canada. Throughout her tenure, she held a number of senior positions in the areas of sales and marketing, and customer care, and was responsible for operations and development in Ontario, Atlantic Canada and Western Canada. Most recently, she focused on the sales side of the operation, servicing and developing retail accounts and leading the sales and groups teams.

“When reflecting on my career at Transat, my time has been wonderful and I will forever be grateful for the incredible opportunities and adventures,” said Heffron. “I feel truly privileged to have worked for, and with, the best in the business.”
