Alistair Rowland

Chief Executive Officer

I have enjoyed 20 years in the Travel Industry, managing many brands along the way, but few as exciting as working with the team at Blue Bay Travel. I am well-travelled personally and love to explore new places. My other role as Chairman of ABTA keeps me busy and helps to see different countries each year, promoting tourism in the destinations. My favourite places to visit are New York with its vibrant and bustling boroughs and Mexico to relax, enjoying the feel of the Caribbean and the standards from the USA.
