Peluso departure tests Travelocity

‘Leaving to spend more time with family.’ Where have we heard that before? Well, it’s an excuse rya39qc2.jpgoffered when someone gets fired or indicted. Sometimes they leave ‘to pursue other interests,’ but that means that they really got canned. Now however comes someone leaving to spend more time with family because now she has family. Michelle Peluso, the chief of Travelocity Global and an executive veep at Travelocity’s parent, Sabre, says she’s leaving because she has a baby. A Wharton business school graduate, Peluso says she will look for a position “that does not involve an on-going cross-country commute.” Considering her 18-hour workdays at Travelocity, and her vow to answer any Travelocity employee’s email within 24 hours, she’ll have to slow down.


She leaves a lasting legacy at Travelocity: its Roaming Gnome advertising and branding campaign. So in a sense, she has two offspring – the baby and the gnome. Travelocity says that a long-term Sabre vet, Hugh Jones, will take over in February after Peluso’s departure. With 20 years of the travel business under
his belt, Jones has been chief operating officer of Sabre Travel Network and Sabre Airline Solutions. He was also a financial controller at American Airlines, which used to own Sabre. At the right, not Jones, but the Gnome, whose name we don’t really know.
