Laurie Tilley

Travel Management

With over 25 years’ experience in travel, Laurie has a broad range of expertise, including hotels, airlines, and tour operators, holding senior roles at British Airways Holidays where he contracted hotels across the world. This was followed by eight year tenure at Walt Disney Parks and Resorts that included the opening of four theme parks and the launch of the Disney Cruise Line.

After running my own USA specialist tour operator, I joined Connect Worldwide and represented attractions, theme parks and sports venue in the USA. Being part of MDS has given me the opportunity to focus my efforts on sport travel management.

My passion sport especially cricket has allowed me to travel extensively and I recognise the opportunity in this field.

Adidas for their simple effective branding and they are the clothing choice of many sports personalities.
