Integrated travel and related financial services company Thomas Cook (India) Ltd is undertaking a corporate restructuring exercise to streamline its business into four key verticals. This move, TCIL said, will consolidate like businesses into identified entities creating a simpler and more efficient operating structure with dedicated and focused business verticals.
Madhavan Menon, chairman and managing director, TCIL, said, “This proposed restructuring with the realignment of the travel businesses of TCIL and consolidation of the human resource services business into Quess Corp will simplify the group structure, enabling both TCIL and Quess to grow independently and consolidate their positions in their segments with far greater clarity of focus from an industry and growth/opportunity point of view - for investors, management and teams.”
Accordingly, the four key verticals will include ‘travel’ outbound, domestic, business travel and MICE, ‘foreign exchange’, ‘destination management services’ and ‘portfolio investments’ such as Sterling Holiday Resorts Ltd.
