(Photo by Harry How/Getty Images)Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence capped off a stellar freshman season with an outstanding performance in the Tigers’ national championship game win over Alabama on Monday. In doing so, Lawrence already made himself the favorite to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.Before that happens, he still has some business to accomplish in college. He is already the early favorite for the 2019 Heisman Trophy, and ESPN’s Mark Schlabach made a bold prediction this morning that Lawrence will actually win the Heisman twice.That means Schlabach is calling for Lawrence to win the award in 2019 and 2020. The only person to win the Heisman in back-to-back years is Ohio State running back Archie Griffin in the 1970s.Griffin is still the only two-time Heisman winner, so Lawrence would be joining an exclusive fraternity if he takes the trophy home twice.At 6-foot-6 and 205 pounds, Lawrence has a rare combination of size, arm strength, mobility and intelligence. Even better, he’s one of the most grounded 19-year-old kids you’ll meet.[ … ]Lawrence is only going to get better. He will lead the Tigers back to the CFP in 2019, winning the stiff-armed trophy as a reward.You can read the rest of Schlabach’s predictions for 2019 here.It should be a lot of fun seeing Lawrence and Tua Tagovailoa duke it out for the Heisman next fall.last_img read more

Mal Barritt Appointed as New CEO of Traveltek

first_imgTraveltek Ltd has appointed accomplished travel industry expert Mal Barritt to take the reigns as the company looks to strengthen its product and service offering and expand into new markets.   East Kilbride, United Kingdom, 4th June, 2019: Mal will join from luxury travel company ITC Travel Group and take up post in August. A seasoned travel professional, Mal boasts over 26 years in the industry. Prior to ITC, he co-founded WTH UK Ltd which operates well-known travel brands Cruise118.com, SixStarCruises.co.uk and RiverVoyages.com. He’s also held senior leadership roles at Destinology, Thomas Cook/MyTravel and Gold Medal, and has forged a formidable reputation as a results-driven, client-focused leader with strong strategic insight. Traveltek already has an impressive client roster, with some of the industry’s biggest names utilising its award-winning reservation platform to manage their travel portfolios. And while it’s still pursuing an ambitious global expansion plan, the focus at HQ is currently on improving its core product, enhancing the service and support offered to clients and on the development of a new, industry-first solution, due to launch later this year; all things which Mal will now take forward. “I’m absolutely delighted to be joining Traveltek at what is undoubtedly a crucial time in the company’s development,” Mal commented. “Traveltek is renowned for its product, which revolutionised the way that travel is sold. “In fact, the platform in itself was one of the main draws for me in taking up the post. The company managed to capitalise on an early mover advantage and the journey it’s been on since then is extremely impressive. The team that came before me – many of whom are still there – have built up a really strong foundation. The job for me now is to build on that and to help grow the business by bringing this technology to a wider, global audience. “That said, it’s not only about growth. It’s about improving things for our existing customers too. I’m deeply passionate about service delivery. I firmly believe that customers should be at the heart of everything we do. So, one of my key focusses initially will be to ensure that we’re delivering consistently high levels of service and support and on improving the deployment of the product, wherever possible, too. I have a great team around me and I’m really looking forward to taking up the mantle and being part of the company’s next chapter.” Traveltek has undergone a sizeable transformation in the last twelve months, firstly with the appointment of new Chief Commercial Officer, Cressida Sergeant, followed by a new Chief Operating Officer, Phil Astall. The company also welcomed aboard a new Chairman, Chris Noblet, who has a wealth of experience in scaling software businesses. Mal’s appointment completes this management re-structure and the company is now fully armed with a new and formidable driving force. “I’m delighted that Mal is joining us,” said Chris Noblet, Chairman. “Given his extensive industry experience and proven track record, he makes an excellent addition to what is now an extremely solid team.”last_img read more
