Gordon Young Retires As Star Alliance Coordinator Australia

December 10, 2020 Business News No Comments

Star Alliance, the world’s largest airline alliance, today announces that Gordon Young, Coordinator Australia, has decided to retire effective 31 December 2020.

Young joined Star Alliance in early 2014, bringing with him more than 40 years’ experience working for some of the world’s most respected travel and tourism organisations, including American Express and Virgin Australia.

As Coordinator Australia he has helped significantly raise Star Alliance’s profile in Australia through innovative trade and consumer marketing promotions, including Star Alliance’s ground-breaking sponsorship of the AFTA National Travel Industry Awards. In addition, he found new ways to enhance Australians travel agents’ understanding of Star Alliance’s products and services through a broad range of creative training programs and incentive campaigns.

Rick Pomery, Chair of the Star Alliance Country Steering Committee, says Young’s passion and determination have been “nothing short of inspirational”.

“As well as an unrivalled ability to build enduring relationships, Gordon has a rare gift for recognising opportunities and delivering outcomes that inevitably exceed expectations,” says Pomery.

“Nothing better epitomises his success than Star Alliance’s dazzling promotions at the National Travel Industry Awards, which each year found new and canny ways to ensure no one shone brighter than Star Alliance on the travel industry’s night of nights.

“There is no doubt that as a result of these efforts – which have been recognised across the Star Alliance world – Star Alliance has never been more respected or enjoyed a greater presence in the Australian marketplace.”
