SOUTHLAKE, Texas, August 5, 2008 – Sabre Holdings Corporation has named Sterling Miller general counsel and corporate secretary. Miller replaces David Schwarte, who will remain in Sabre’s legal department on a part-time basis as special counsel.
Since 2004, Miller, 45, has served as general counsel for Travelocity, a Sabre Holdings subsidiary. He has been part of the Sabre Holdings legal department since 1996. Prior to his work at Sabre, Miller was an attorney with American Airlines and, before that, with the St. Louis law firm of Gallop, Johnson & Neuman.

“We are very excited to have someone as talented and seasoned as Sterling as our new general counsel,” said Sam Gilliland, Sabre Holdings chairman and CEO. “Having worked with him for many years now, I know that this will be a very smooth transition.
