Starting his career, he held several roles at a senior-level agency side, working with a wide portfolio of brands such as Absolut Vodka, Adidas, PlayStation, Microsoft, and Mont Blanc. An award-winning marketer, many campaigns created have been nominated and won Marketing, PR Week, PRCA, CIPR and Sabre awards. For two years running, Peter was named the number one luxury communication professional by PR Week’s annual Global Power Book.


Peter has been brought into A&K Group to create a one-brand approach, build a best-in-class marketing, communications, and creative team, and refine and relaunch all parts of its marketing, communications and creative approach.

Peter Chipchase added:


‘Becoming CMO at A&K Travel Group is exactly the sort of challenge I love to be part of, creating a vision of the future influenced by a brand’s heritage. The ambition is huge and being a key part of helping to bring that to life was too good an opportunity to miss.’
