Travel Leaders Group (TLG) has reached an agreement to acquire Barrhead Travel Group, one of Scotland’s largest retail travel companies, with more than 75 locations and more than 900 employees and agents. Barrhead will become part of TLG’s growing presence in the UK. Barrhead will retain its distinct brand identity within TLG’s UK portfolio, and chief executive Sharon Munro will continue to manage the business. Her father and Barrhead founder, Bill Munro, will serve in a strategic advisory role as chairman of the Barrhead division within TLG. No major changes in operations are anticipated. Sharon Munro said that joining TLG will give Barrhead the resources to expand into additional markets, access to new technology and the ability to innovate. Once the transaction is finalized, TLG’s UK portfolio will include Colletts Travel, Protravel International UK and Tzell UK. Combined, these four brands, together with Altour UK, will rank among the top travel management companies in the UK, according to the company.
