Daniel Pearce is CEO and owner of TTG Media. After joining the Travel Trade Gazette as editor in 2010, he moved to brand director in 2012 before mounting a management buy-out in 2013 and setting up TTG Media as a wholly independent business. Since then TTG Media has gone from strength to strength, launching a string of new initiatives including the TTG Top 50 Travel Agencies, TTG LGBT events, the ttgluxury Travel Awards, the ttgluxury Travel Summit, the TTG Diversity & Inclusion in Travel project and most recently TTG+.
In April 2019 the business saw a rebrand under a new vision for a ‘Smarter, Better, Fairer’ travel industry – and new investment in print publishing, with TTG magazine, now monthly, still at the heart of the industry 67 years after its first edition. In November 2019 TTG Media was named Independent Publishing Company of the Year at the PPA Independent Publisher Awards, while in May 2020 TTG was named Business Media Brand of the Year at the Campaign Publishing Awards.
Daniel celebrates 25 years in media in 2021, following a career working in local newspapers and for media businesses large and small including Reed Business Information and UBM, in B2B sectors including retail and hospitality.
