Change of leadership at Europe’s third-largest tour operator: From 1 July 2023, the FTI GROUP will be led by Karl Markgraf. He will become Managing Director, take over the position of CEO of the group and retain his position as CIO, thus steering the GROUP in a dual function. At the same time, the company is reshaping the Supervisory Board: Wolfgang Altmüller and Dr Florian Amereller are leaving the Board. They will be replaced by Naguib S. Sawiris, controlling shareholder of the FTI GROUP, who will take over the Chairman role, and Ralph Schiller, the former CEO of the FTI GROUP, who will take over a new role as Deputy Chairman.
The FTI GROUP stands out with concentrated competence for the Orient tourism business. Fabio Prestijacopo moves from Destination Management to Tour Operating as new Strategic Destination Officer. His former position as COO at MP U.A.E. is taken over by John Taker. In Munich, Christian Schulz heads the product team and Christian Schellinger joins on a secondment basis.
Through its MP Hotels company, the FTI GROUP is adding another ambitious project to its collection of sustainable goals.
