Andrew Stark has been appointed to the new role of Global MD for the flagship retail brand to drive the global leisure strategy to “prosper”. Starky will take on the role in the new year, as FCB kicks off 2022 with its 40th-anniversary celebrations.

At the centre of FCTG’s leisure strategy to prosper are the exciting plans for our 40-year-old Flight Centre brand in 2022. Given the significance of the brand and the global approach we are now taking, it was vital to have a dedicated and experienced leader to drive this strategy globally. Andrew Stark has been appointed to the role of Global MD for FCB and will commence his role, relocating to Australia, in the new year.

Starky has been with FCTG for over 17 years, working in both South Africa and New Zealand. He has lead product nations in both countries as well as Corporate and Leisure businesses. In his current role as MD for South Africa and the Middle East, Starky has driven the regions to outstanding results whilst navigating the uncertainty of recent times. Under Starky’s leadership, FCTG RSA celebrated a milestone in September, achieving bottom-line Company Profit for the first time since the pandemic.
