Nick Queale, Flight Centre NZ General Manager Corporate, says there have been a number of changes in the business of late, all very positive and reflective of the exciting changes ahead for the corporate arm of FCNZ.

“With Andy Jack this week beginning his new role as General Manager Executive Travel, I am pleased to announce the appointment of Angie Forsyth to General Manager FCM Travel Solutions/Stage & Screen.

Angie has been with FCNZ for 16 years, and in her most recent role as General Manager Corporate Traveller for more than 10 years.

“Angie is a highly experienced and proven senior leader and has too many achievements for me to list, I’m thrilled to have her on board with FCM. Her commitment and dedication to each business she heads up is unwavering, and I know she'll continue to drive momentum for what has been an exciting chapter for our corporate businesses." 

Forsyth is currently on maternity leave. Until her return to the business in January, Jarrod Patterson will act as interim General Manager. 

“Jarrod currently leads our Corporate Customer Experience team. His passion and energy is unmissable and he will be an asset to the business during this transition."

In a newly created role, Paulito Cardeno, Corporate Technology Leader, will be the driving force behind technological advances within the corporate business.

Paui (as he likes to be known) brings with him 16+ years of IT experience and management having worked in Beijing, Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines and most recently Flight Centre NZ.

Paui will lead Flight Centre NZs Corporate Technology and Systems team, working in collaboration with the Data Excellence team. Collectively they make up the Corporate Command Centre, a newly created division that uses data and analytics to find best outcomes for clients.

“I’m thrilled to have somebody with Paui’s experience and industry knowledge coming on board. The new role is a fantastic addition and I’m excited by the cutting edge new solutions we’re going to be able to offer our clients.”
