MONTREAL — A notice from Karine Gagnon, General Manager, Transat Distribution Canada offers a heads up about organizational changes within TDC.

“To align with our goals and with the objective of improving efficiency and synergies within our organization, I am announcing some changes to TDC’s current structure,” says Gagnon.

Anthony Mormina

Here’s a look at the changes …

Anthony Mormina is promoted to Senior Director, Sales & Corporate Operations.  In his new role, Mormina is responsible for leading and strengthening sales & operations for all TDC’s company owned and managed retail points of sale, pursuing the company’s objectives. This includes TDC’s Loyalty partners & Club Voyages Affaire division, Voyages Transat, and Transat Travel agencies across Canada, as well as the Agent@Home sector.

Colette Girard is promoted to Director, Franchise and Affiliate members. Girard has been managing relationships with TDC’s members in Québec for over 11 years, and Gagnon says Girard’s extensive experience as a leader in both travel retail and tour operating, as well as solid relationships established over time with TDC members, make her the ideal candidate. Girard will take on the director role, overseeing the same territory, with the support of a manager, for which a recruitment process is underway.

Gagnon adds: “As the team gradually transitions into their new roles, Anthony will continue to be involved with our members in the coming weeks, ensuring a smooth transition with Colette, until a new manager is nominated. I, myself, will oversee our corporate agencies operations in the interim.”
