Stratton joins CMV Travel Group

Peter Stratton appointed as MD of the wholesale, group and retail travel subsidiaries of the fast growing CMV travel group. The group currently includes cruise, tour operations and wholesale, retail and corporate travel services. Peter Stratton, who bought Simpson Recruitment, the executive recruitment specialist, in January 2000, previously held positions including Marketing and Sales Director for P&O Ferries and Eurotunnel. Whilst at P&O, Stratton also chaired the Ferry Section of the Passenger Shipping Association for a number of years.

During the past fifteen years, Stratton has also been involved with numerous consulting projects, assisting with growth and business strategies for travel and non-travel companies, including mergers and acquisitions.
