Advantage Travel Partnership has promoted two of its senior leadership team.

Leisure Director Kelly Cookes becomes Chief Commercial Officer, while Operations Director Paul Nunn becomes Chief Operating Officer.

Kelly will concentrate on leveraging the Group’s global buying power and driving improved commercial benefit across the Group, looking at opportunities to develop additional member products and services for the membership.

She will also be focused on maximising membership recruitment and retention working alongside her senior management team.

Phil, who has worked for Advantage for over 20 years, will continue to head up all operational, IT, regulatory and compliance aspects of the Advantage group of companies, as well as work with the wider global team to deliver further business solutions, including bonding and insurance products and services.

The promotions follow the appointment in May of Guy Snelgar to the newly created position of Global Business Travel Director.

Advantage Travel Partnership CEO Julia Lo Bue-Said said another senior appointment will be announced within weeks.

Julia added:  “The pandemic forced us to look at how we operate, build resilience in all we do and kept us laser-focused on supporting our members. 

“It also gave us an opportunity to raise the awareness of Advantage as a media go-to brand and a consumer champion, whilst consistently advocating the benefit of using a travel agent for both business and leisure travel.

“As our global business continues to grow and diversify, we now need to better support the strategic framework we have set ourselves going forward.

“Both Kelly and Paul have delivered over and above during the last few years, and I am delighted to be offering them these well-deserved promotions.”
