Before Galileo International, Galeotos was CEO of strategic distribution and travel services for Cendant. In 2001, Cendant acquired Cheap Tickets, Inc. where Galeotos served as president and CEO. Galeotos moved to Cheap Tickets from Worldspan Travel Systems, a Galileo competitor, where he was a founding member and co-CEO. At Worldspan, Galeotos was responsible for global operations of computer reservations, airline services and e-commerce. Prior to Worldspan, Galeotos served as system manager for automation sales with Delta Airlines.
