General Manager, Blue Holidays
Based in Brisbane, Australia, Chad manages the Blue Holidays (www.blueholidays.com.au) site and team, working closely with ZUJI, Travelocity and Virgin Blue teams to incorporate Virgin Blue and its partner airlines' flights into travel packages, which can be booked dynamically online on the Blue Holidays site.
Blue Holidays is the holiday program by Virgin Blue, which is a strategic venture between Virgin Blue and ZUJI. ZUJI's Travel Partner Network (TPN) division manages the Blue Holidays online booking website operations, and flights are provided by Virgin Blue and its International carriers Pacific Blue and Polynesian Blue.

Chad also worked in other roles for ZUJI, including a USA-based appointment where he oversaw the integration of Travelocity technology into ZUJI during ZUJI's start-up phase.
Before joining ZUJI, Chad held a variety of travel industry roles in Australia, New Zealand and the USA with Gullivers Pacific' and Continental Airlines.
Chad's idea of a fantastic holiday is to explore a new destination and find a new adventure.
