CHIEF TECHNOLOGY OFFICER AU/NZ
Troy Winterbottom drives our technology advancements across Australia and New Zealand as acting leader of the Corporate Travel Management Technology Hub in Sydney, Australia. With an impressive background in travel technology, including launching his own successful start-up online travel agency (OTA), Troy possesses a vast range of skills and knowledge that have been vital to the success of our technology products.
Troy was first exposed to travel technology 13 years ago, when he worked on a start-up that challenged Wotif in the early days of the hotel OTA environment. The start-up gained a lot of attention and was soon bought by Australia Online Travel (AOT). Troy was engaged to work with the AOT technology team to improve the suite of applications.
After some time working with AOT and experiencing the wholesale side of travel technology, Troy accepted a position as technical lead for a medium-sized development house where he worked with large corporations to deliver custom technical solutions.
Before joining our CTM team, Troy was involved in developing and launching a global online booking tool for the travel youth sector.
Since joining CTM, Troy has played a huge role in the development process for many of CTM’s key technology products. He has been involved in the evolution of start-up innovation ideas, which have now scaled out to be global successes. This is something Troy strives at, seeing his technical background and entrepreneur experience.
