The following is the [Travel News]: Expedia adds SoftBank deputy general counsel Patricia Menendez-Cambo to board from [GeekWire] recommended by TheTourAttraction.com:

Expedia’s board has 14 members, including chairman and senior executive Barry Diller.

Seattle-based travel giant Expedia Group named Patricia Menendez-Cambo, deputy general counsel of SoftBank Group and general counsel of the SoftBank Latin America Fund and SoftBank Opportunity Fund, to its board of directors.

Menendez-Cambo fills a vacancy created by the resignation in January of longtime board member A. George “Skip” Battle. She joined the board’s audit committee, satisfying a Nasdaq rule requiring three independent directors on the audit committee, Expedia said.

In a statement released by the company, Menendez-Cambo described travel as “critical to the global economy,” saying that she’s excited to join the Expedia Group board “during an era of recovery and transformation for the travel industry.”

Expedia’s board has 14 members, including chairman and senior executive Barry Diller; Clinton Foundation vice chair Chelsea Clinton; Uber CEO and former Expedia Group CEO Dara Khosrowshahi; and Open AI CEO Sam Altman; among others. Vice chairman Peter Kern took over last year as Expedia Group CEO following the ouster of previous CEO Mark Okerstrom in December 2019.
