Cruise and escorted tour specialist Riviera Travel has appointed two new Key Account Managers, Beverley Philpotts and Claire Hills; here we find out a little bit more about them.

Beverley Philpotts

I never travel without…my credit card!

My go-to destination is… Cala San Vicent, Mallorca, happy family memories, I always aim to swim bay to bay the day I arrive.

When I travel I never get tired of listening to…the sea

My secret weakness is…chocolate (any, but Lindt or Maltesers especially ) – life on the road doesn’t help!

The next place I’ll visit is…Paris and Normandy on a 5* Riviera River Cruise next month. I can’t wait!

My mantra is… always build people up, never push them down.

My hero is…my 82 year-old mum, born the day war was declared, she went in the Birmingham Post as Britain’s first war baby! We speak every day.

The three things I’d take to a desert island are…a good epic book (or maybe one on how to survive a desert island), an umbrella for sun or rain protection and a mattress (which could be used as a raft if inflatable).

The restaurant I’d choose for a perfect date is…The Windmill in Skiathos Town.

The thing I’m most proud of is…my three girls and seeing them develop into women of the future.

The most famous person I’ve met was… Taylor Swift, I’m a huge fan (through my eldest daughter Ellie). She was lovely and commented she liked my jacket – I’ll take that : ) As soon as Shake it Off is played I’m on that dancefloor.

When I was younger, I wanted to be… a travel journalist or a travel agent. I managed the one and my eldest daughter is now a journalist.

Claire Hills

I never travel without… sunglasses – I like going where the sun shines 😊

I’ll never go back to… Darwin in Australia, it was too humid with too many mozzies for my liking.

The famous person I’d most like to travel with is… Micky Flanagan, for the laughs and to go out out with.

When I travel I never get tired of listening to… John Legend, Get Lifted

My weakness is… definitely chocolate, in any shape or form.

My go-to destination is… Thailand, I’ve visited eight times now.

The next place I’ll visit is… hopefully Australia (flights are held). I have a one-year-old nephew I’ve never met.

My mantra is… live life to the full

The three things I’d take to a desert island are… a sarong (it has so many uses) suncream and music to keep me sane.

The thing I’m most proud of is…my children

The most famous person I’ve met was… I was once in a lift at the One Aldwych with Brad Pitt, and yes, he spoke to me!

When I was younger, I wanted to be… an air hostess, even back then I wanted to travel.
