Simone Maillard joined Duffel last week as VP, Global Partnerships. At Duffel, Simone will build on our foundation of forging strong relationships with airlines on their New Distribution Capability (NDC) journey and accelerating our partnership strategy as we work to connect with more airlines faster.
She joins Duffel from TripActions, a travel management company (TMC), where she served as VP of Partnerships for air as well as other supply-related partnerships. This builds on over 15 years of experience in the travel industry with both Mystifly and Expedia, where she developed a strong track record of developing content acquisition strategies while managing distribution and airline partnerships. Prior to Expedia, Simone started her career in tech at Microsoft as a Program Manager.
Truly a global citizen, Simone has lived in Trinidad, Canada, India, the United Kingdom, and currently lives in the United States. She’ll be leading Duffel’s strategic partnerships from the US while also expanding Duffel’s hub in America.
