Travel technology provider Sabre Corporation has appointed former Bain & Company Partner Clinton Anderson as its new Senior Vice President of Strategy. In this role, Anderson will be responsible for the identification of growth opportunities across Sabre.
Sabre Corporation is a global technology provider to the travel and tourism industry. The firm, established in 1960, has its headquarters in Southlake, Texas, and operates in approximately 60 countries around the world. In line with its desire to expand its footprint and maximise its growth opportunities, Sabre recently hired Clinton Anderson as Senior Vice President of Strategy and Business Development. In this capacity, Anderson will focus on identifying and evaluating organic and inorganic growth opportunities across the company. In addition to this, he will lead the Corporate Strategy team.
Anderson joins Sabre with extensive experience in delivering profitable growth opportunities and operational efficiency, most notably gained during his almost two decades at Bain & Company, a firm he joined straight out of the university. During his 18 years at the consulting firm he climbed the ranks, and in his last role served as a Partner and Leader of Bain’s Consumer Products and Performance Improvement practices. After this, Anderson acted as Partner at Crow’s Nest Advisors and co-founded the private investment firm Emerson/Anderson. Anderson has a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Alberta and an MBA from Harvard Business School.
Commenting on the appointment, said Tom Klein, President and CEO of Sabre, says: “Clinton is a strong addition to the Sabre executive team. In more than two decades with Bain and in his own consulting business, Clinton has built an enviable track record for delivering profitable growth opportunities for clients across several global industries, including the travel industry, as well as identifying innovative emerging technologies to drive customer value.”
